Hi Ya, well you are way ahead of me. This weekend, dependent on she who must be obeyed, I will be sowing runners, earthing spuds, planting out french beans and my CtoTs and sowing carrots and parsnips. The weather if forecast good so fingers crossed

I noticed some of my Barksdale pole beans had been decapitated so had to replant those, all the others are doing fine. Cucumbers are up and all the tomatoes are finally planted out.
I think I mentioned before, these beans have really made the rounds ;). Within a month the made their way, well almost, around the globe. I was looking for a particular runner variety for someone else in your neck of the woods, Piekny Jas a Polish runner, seed doesn't seem to be sold anywhere here in North America, the only place you might find it is in a Polish Deli sold as a dry bean for culinary use. Another bean enthusiast down island from me thought she found it, it was labeled  PJ but when we germinated it turned out to be a Lima bean, not the runner I was looking for :(.
So... back on the hunt again, a gal on another forum I visit found someone in Eastern Europe who was willing to buy a packet of seed and send it to her she's in Ohio, it peaked her interest being  Polish herself and another fellow in Texas also Polish was interested as well.
When the seed arrived she divided the seed among three of us besides herself. A few went ???, a few went to Texas, a few came to me here in Canada and I sent 5 of the 8 I got to the UK the gal I was looking for this variety in the first place. they almost made a round trip :). As you can see we bean addicts stick together.
I planted the three seeds I kept hoping to get as much seed as I can from them. I doubt I'll grow them again myself but want to have them available to anyone who wants to get this variety in circulation over here. Still hoping to grow a few Aeron Purple Star over at my daughter's place, I have lots of seed so don't have to save any this year, we can eat them all, that is if she will share with me:D.
It will take me awhile to get used to the new format here, but very thankful to see it up and running again, missed chatting with you guys. I hoping our BIG GEE puts in an appearance soon, his Auntie misses him :(.

Had a day out yesterday  at plot did lots of weeding cut the grass path and enjoyed the peace and quiet .. Things seem to be growing slowly this year maybe they will have a growth spurt after the rain we had tuesday evening  it was needed as it was getting very hot and sticky ..

Had a few hours at plot today after i took the dogs for a gallop even the weeds are slowing up growing it,s been dry and even cool for the past couple of days and everything seems to have slowed up growing ... So im on top of the weeds at the moment may regret saying that if we get the rain sun and heat  lol(1)  .. Hope everything is going well for the rest of the growers on here ..      HAGD :-)

Now that we're into June it has cooled down, hasn't rained yet but June can be a very wet month here. Everything is planted and so far looking good, almost everything out of the greenhouse so soon I can give it a good clean out, shut the door and let the sun do a solar cleanup  :).

A little success story, I had a package of bought (2012) heirloom bean seeds "Ralph's Italian" it was looking like everyone who had this variety had lost them. I tried every method I knew on reviving old seed to no avail. I was just doing a bit of cleanup and went to toss the packet the beans were in and found one seed. I put it in a seed sprouting jar I use for sprouting seed for culinary use, a mason jar with lid allowing you to fill with water swish and dump several rimes a day. Low and behold it sprouted and is now planted out. It now has the nickname "Only the Lonely" Have my fingers crossed it will produce a few pods. Another gal in the states manged to get a few of the same seed from the same year to germinate, these few might be the last on the planet, keeping my fingers crossed.
