The runner beans are safely watered in, nestling beneath their Heath Robinson rigged canes. The cane frame is a bit better than previous years efforts, but not by much. It's the string, you see. Or that the ground is a bit lumpy. Perhaps the canes? They are a bit old and split and of varying lengths. But eleven little runner bean plants have been nurtured from seed and now reside in the newly dug vegetable patch.
Okay - my bit was just building the rickety wonky cane frame. The digging was dug heroically by Lynnie. But afterwards I needed a cup of tea and a quiet time in Mission Control.
Spring has definitely sprung. The view from Mission Control is all fresh and velvety once more.
