Late April sowings

Beans are on my mind!

The seeds can stand on a wet cloth or tissue for the night before sowing.

I'll sow a double row about 2" deep of dwarf French bean seeds. For runner beans I'll use Firestorm as it's self pollinating; seeds 6" apart in a double row.
After making the drill, I'll water well with hand hot water and put the seeds on warm damp earth, covering with drier soil.

A row of sugar snap peas sown in the same way will give me peas in June.

June and July are the best 'season' to put up a new polythene tunnel - for winter crops!
