Also there's no sign of disease on the leaves which I've had in previous years and I've been harvesting this amount of beans practically daily!
The courgettes, cucumbers and tomatoes have all cropped well and stayed very healthy too - this was today's haul.
Interestingly the two tomato plants given to me by a friend have cropped less heavily than the ones that I grew from seed by the lunar calendar, but of course this might be due to the different varieties rather than anything to do with the moon!
and this was sown on the correct day but a week later.
Both pictures were taken on the same day and you can see that the later one has not only caught up, it's over taken and remained healthy despite almost being drowned in the monsoons we had which meant it sat under an inch of water for a while!
Anyone like a borlotti bean - I have quite a few!
