    Butter Beans

    We always have several tins of butter beans in the cupboard. They are relatively cheap so i haven't tried growing them. They are a good addition to stews and curries etc.

    Help with rhubarb

    I'm still picking and selling it. As long as they have plenty of water they keep going here. The rhubarb patch is close to the beans so gets watered regularly - when the sprinkler is on.

    What's munching my crops?

    I don't recognise that as rhubarb, anyway it is badly nibbled. Rhubarb tends to attract slugs a bit later in the season when it dies down for the winter.

    Put butterfly netting over your caulis to keep the cabbage whites off. Pick off the caterpillars by hand and squash them.

    Onion drying

    I usually dont dig my onions up while they still have much green on them. I always think if the tops are still green then the bulbs are still growing.
