Dear Primrose,
my pole beans are runner types this year; white enorma, czar and greek gigantes (real seed catalogue) all of which I am growing for SEED (butter beans - yum) so by the time they are ready for harvesting as dry pods the chilli oil will have worn off. Unless, of course, you are a thief and take them as green pods.......

Robo - I have thought of getting a wildlife cam but if the thieves are total strangers having their picture would not be helpful and if they are fellow plot holders I am not really sure I would want to know as it could cause a lot of problems. Yes I know pictures would be "proof" but it would still be their word against mine.

Regards Sally Wright.

OH, could you be doing the same as I was when I read this,

I was confusing Enorma Runner beans, which have red flowers, with Enorma Butter beans which are white.


I've never grown butter beans

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet
