A neighbour who also grows asparagus didn't stake his and they are leaning over almost on the ground, without a chance of restructuring.
I also noticed some wind-burn damage to my bean wigwams, I remember this happening last year, however the bean plants still produced prolifically.
Overall I was fortunate enough to weather the storm, but Tony my next door neighbour suffered some severe damage to his bean frame and cold frames.
I also sowed some radishes as we have had no luck with radishes so far this year.
My courgettes are still doing well and the yellow variety are outstripping the green variety this year, we have given a lot away to people at the bowls club. Margaret has made some delicious courgette soup and has roasted some of them to add to the array of vegetables on our plates.
(1) Sow or broadcast the seeds.
(2) Chop the foliage down and leave it to wilt.
(3) Dig plants and foliage into top 25cm of soil.
After digging in, the site should be left for two weeks or more before sowing seeds or planting. Decaying manure can harm plant growth.
(1) Buckwheat ~~ best sown April to August. Good for nutrient-poor soils
(2) Mustard ~~ Should not be followed by Brassicas. ~~ Mustard is a member of the family
(3) Grazing Rye ~ Good for soil structure and overwintering well ~ Sow August to November.
I like the idea of PHACELIA TANACETIFOLIA though as it has so many plus factors.
