…strawberry, that is. This little strawberry Temptation plant was just under two months old when I took the photo. I planted the seeds on April 6th and within a couple of weeks the seedling of this merry little one had appeared.
As for the dwarf French beans I showed you last week, I picked my first harvest of them for this year on Saturday.
They did sneak up on me a bit. Not that they towered over me in the greenhouse and tapped me on the shoulder, you understand. But their leaves had become such a luscious green umbrella that I did not realise the little squirly beans I had seen appearing under them had grown so much and multiplied in such a short space of time! And so runs my excuse for not having picked them a bit earlier which, when I saw these, I thought I should have done. When I cooked them they were tender and tasty, though, so it all worked out alright.
