Re: Bean/Pea Frame

I started putting horizontal string on canes then checked out pea harp method which looks easier.

Do peas need vertical & horizontal lines or just vertical?

Will peas & bean climb up bamboo or do they need string?

Re: Greenhouse Temperature

Going to check out the charity shows for some.

This high temp could be short lived as forecast is for dropping down to 6 degrees next week.

Re: Bean/Pea Frame

When I put the peas grown in the green house in the veg bed do I need to cover them with netting?

Will the pheasants or pigeons find them a tasty treat or is it only when they are seeds?

Re: Spread Sheet

Thanks for all you replies, yes I did a search but did not come up with much of interest.

At the moment I make a note of what is sown & date on paper then transfer it to a word document. This is 5 pages long so far, so wondering how can I collate it into something useful for later on.

Re: (Delayed) Spring 2018

Thanks for you kind comments, can’t say it was hard work, just used the little & often approach. Most days I was the only person on their plot during the winter. There was the benefit that the plot had been looked after in the past though.
