    Fingers crossed for a good harvest, the parsley peas in the greenhouse (early sowing to get seed), are showing flower buds , and the cranberry pole beans are just coming up.
    I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!
    Now a little Shrinking Violet.

        No, the Mods were far too polite to tell me

            May I join? I can either offer two kinds of B.beans = masterpiece green longpod and sutton dwarf, or can offer one broad bean and a pea variety (will have to check on the names of the ones i have growing)

                  Right im just giving this another bump - just incase anyone who hasn't added the varieties they are growing for the swap, wants to add them now!

                  I would also like to note this thread is also for people to discuss how their pea/bean crops are growing, when they harvest the seed etc

                    I may need to drop out of this, my mange tout is doing ok, but my beans have for the most part been destroyed by slugs/snails

                      I think I'm out too, nothing much happening on the peas and beans front in my garden. It will take a miracle to have any to eat, let alone save for seeds. Sorry Matt - you can be rude about me again now

                        well for the moment i will leave both of your names on the list (if thats ok with you both?), then in august i will ask everyone if they are still taking part, as this is around the time when you should be harvesting your seeds.

                              Think I'm with VC. I hope my polytunnel ones grow well, but they will be feeding us rather than going for seed. Obviously not a good year to have joined. I may still have Crimson Flowered broad beans, but have yet to see. They probably won't even dry. This weather is pathetic.
