Beanfeast



These were picked from the garden yesterday for tea, in the pot within ten minutes, can't get much better than that! Mixture of Cherokee Trail of Tears and Crimson Flowered broadies, the sweetest ones I have tasted, and I grow them every year.


This one was taken on Friday, up at Rawlsbury camp, an old hill fortress from Roman times and beyond, up over Bulbarrow. I love it up there, it's wild and windy, you can usually only hear the whistling wind and the occasional sheep. We pick sloes up there in the autumn. It definitely has something there, I can feel it. MrL laughs at me, but I get a bit spooked there sometimes. Had lunch there on Friday.

I've been growing Cherokee Trail of Tears for a couple of years and love them but will try the others you mentioned!!

I get my Crimson Flowered broad beans from Plants of Distinction every year; I buy fresh seed to keep it true. The flowers are beautiful. Another bean to try if you like something a bit different is runner bean Sunset - gorgeous apricot/peachy flwoers, lovely sweet beans; from POD too.

I'm growing Trail of Tears for the first time - no beans yet but we have just eaten dinner with the first few dwarf beans of 3 different types (trouble is I can't remember what any of them are!)
