That bean wasn't a French bean at all. C says we are going to come into the kitchen and find a triffid walking out of the door.
This is it (with cherry toms in the background which may have a triffid gene, they have grown that much in 24 hours....) today.
At some point I'll have to transplant it and relocate to the greenhouse. The strawberries gave us a bowlful yesterday, yum so sweet and still warm from the sun.
