I mentioned yesterday that early in the week we had every weather hit us thanks to Hurricane Bertha. We woke up in the morning, only to find the one vegetable doing brilliantly in the garden had been given a good bashing from the weather - the runner beans.
One of our climbing bean frames was on its side. We managed to get it back upright, but its not the same as the structure is now weakened and some of the roots have been pulled from the soil. I have harvested a load of runner beans, and will probably freeze a load of them, but I want to make the most of them while fresh, so any recipe suggestions would be most welcome.
The climbing french beans are also doing relatively okay, these are Blue Lake and Blauhilde - a purple variety (see below) that lose their colour upon cooking.
Some of you may remember from last week, that our greenhouse tomatoes have been hit by something, so supply has been disappointing, still we have managed to get some and enjoy them on the side.
I am sharing this very small harvest with Daphne Dandelions for Harvest Monday.
