Scotland Agrees …

… regardless of the current debate raging over Scotland’s future, everyone I have spoken to recently is unanimous: this fine, dry, warm September weather can continue just as long as it likes. If it wasn’t for the chilly starts, we might actually be in July.

It’s been good news for the garden with a bonus second picking of broad beans – maybe not quite enough for a meal, but enough to make a solid contribution to a dish of Random Veg Risotto (where we’re going to put all the French beans is another question seeing as we have rashly filled up the freezer with blackberries).

September broad beans

My peas, which have been absolutely pathetic all summer long, have suddenly discovered their mojo. In September. (They’re still not climbing up any of the supports I provide for them, of course, but I’m used to that)

And the dinosaur egg mystery beans? Well, whatever they are, there are about to be a lot more of them…

This may or may not be a good thing.

    Lovely produce, I’m envying you your peas, mine finished so long ago they’re just a distant memory. I need to remember to sow successionally next year. I have very similar climbing borlotti beans, although mine have been harvested already. I think they’re something I’ll grow every year, they’re so pretty.

    Good to see that you’re still doing well with beans, the last of which certainly look like a borlotti variety. xx

    @CJ I’ve never had much luck with late peas but these are a nice surprise
    @Flighty – yes I’m going to treat them as such, bearing in mind all the dire warnings about cooking them properly
