The tall peas have continued to grow well and Magnum Bonum in the centre of the frame has now reached the top. Magnum Bonum is a wrinkle seeded pea and is flanked by the mangetout Golden Sweet and the round seeded Newick. Squeezed in to what were intended to be bigger gaps are two climbing french beans, Caseknife and Mrs Lewis’s. We have tried both mangetout varieties, Golden Sweet and the larger podded Eat All. In the next day or so we will harvest some of the purple podded Stephen’s.
