Fantastic beans – my Trinity 2012

My Trinity apply to the Runner Beans, Climbing Beans and Borlotti Beans…… I put them all in one whole row at bed no. 8 this year 2012….

I have constructed the beans supported frame with special care and planning….. noticed that the weather can destruct any weak workmanship in the past…. my frame was built with lots of canes and steel poles and it has stood real wonder this year…. Also the bed has been used as compost trench during the winter months…. with all the goodies underground…. the result harvest was very satisfactory….

June view…. at the beginning of June, the young beans started to move upwards….

Have collected lots of Borlotti beans, after drying them for a while, shelling them gave lots of pleasure…. like the jewels popping out one by one… the nature artist has painted each bean a master piece with vibrant and subtle colour all at once…. love it all….
