Re: Butter beans

Sounds worth having a go - thanks for the thread. They do grow it round here so obviously works in this ground.

I know of the sort your Mum used to smoke. Hubby had something similar to help him quit. made of rose petals and camel dung I think, absolutely stunk! :pukeright:

Re: Butter beans

Youre right M3, you can grow all sorts of lovely things here especially hidden in the hedges :icon_smile:

Seriously though, would it be that easy to grow it to smoking and would you need tons of it to make it worthwhile?

Re: Best flavoured tomato ?

The ones in pts grew bigger than the ones outside although the ones outside produced more and tastier toms! Theyre not huge plants - but then the toms are only small but plenty of them! Doesnt help much does it lol.

Re: Best flavoured tomato ?

Bit late on this thread but Ive grown toms from Lidl after eating them and found them delicious!! These are small, kind of bullet shape and packed full of flavour. They grew really well this year too (probably the only thing that has!). Have enjoyed black krim in the past - they didnt grow this year...

Re: butternuts

Ive had a disasterous year with all veggies (too hot and dry!) but most sad for me is the lack of potimarrons and butternuts. Although I planted them in May and theyve flowered, Ive only now got some tiny fruits on the plants. Hoping there will be enough time before the frosts come :dontknow:

Re: Abundance of mint any ideas what to do with it

I made mint wine about 2 years ago, bottled it and stuck it in the barn. Perhaps now is the time to try it!! :drunken:

I make apple and mint jelly which is fabulous with any meat. Will dig out the recipe if you want it?

Runner beans

I have a pathetic amount of runner beans growing this year. Is it too late to plant some more do you think?

Re: Butternuts

I still only have the 1 plant flowering but I have a courgette flowering. Now, silly question of the day - cant I use the 2 different plants for pollination?
