I am pleased to report that the Borlotti beans which the children planted at the allotment are doing really well.
It was a bit of a high risk strategy, since they were beans which I saved from 2013. I sowed some of them last year, but they were all eaten by some mysterious critter. I handed over all of the remaining beans to Year 5 during their class visit, and kept my fingers crossed.
So far they are doing really well. So who knows - maybe we'll have another crop this year? Keep those fingers crossed.
