    Definitely not, but hubby developing intolerances to stuff and me needing to plant up a small paddock with flowers kind of takes the edge off veg growing next year

    Ahhhh, go on - worry. It's nice to know someone cares. I know you have often worried me in the past . In fact there are lots of peeps on here that worry me but they are still brill!

    Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you...'Share'

    OK, I'll "worry" about you in a Mother hen sort of way, caring for her flock, tucking them under her wings and pecking them on the bot when they're norty
    I hope next year you're up to your armpits in flowers........and I'm up to my neck in beans

    My beans will be posted today/tomorrow.
    Wizard Field beans, Striped Bunch DFB and a few Greek Gigantes to try. Special Runner Bean vegetable seeds to buy from The Real Seed Catalogue UK

    Scarlet, don't think I'm rude but my parcel weighed just under 250gr, the cut off point for postage - so I haven't included a note telling you who I am or thanking you for running these circles.
    Beans are heavy so, if you're in this circle, put an extra stamp in to cover the return postage.
    I've also included some chilli seeds that I won't grow for the VSP or anyone who wants them.

    My borlotti are ready and will send in with toms/chillis the weekend.
    i havent dried any blue lake though but as mentioned in another thread it may be for the best.
    this year my b/l were terrible, very short and stubby most of the season and i had two sets in two different beds, one just for drying, both were terrible.

    Having said that , the drying teepee is still there with the beans on so i coud send them when dried but i just dont fancy them tbh, to save from i mean, i shall eat them tho
