Woohoo, great haul, Shelley! We've got purple beans and our first zucchinis just about ready to go, but we can't seem to grow tomatoes outside here. They're instant fruitfly magnets!
beautiful!! I have never seen purple beans. How far into the summer are you? That's a ton of tomatoes. Before I know it, you'll be posting pictures of the tree that is heavy with kiwi fruit. I'll cry then.
Thanks Celia - I think we're still too cool here for fruitfly yet (despite being in Qld - the fruitfly capital)....the temps have only just hit the thirties this week and now everyone is moaning about how hot it is!!!Marianne, these purple beans are amazing. I planted a dozen seeds two years ago and they cropped so madly I missed some and they went to seed. Every year since they have popped up on their own and I now have no chance of taming them! They turn green once they're cooked - very cool trick in the minds of littlies! And as for the kiwi fruit....I'll post some piccies just for you.... :)
