Interesting Anne! I had half a dozen Gigantes do that, so just tipped them out, turned 'em round and gave them a good talking to!

They're fine now, maybe a bit embarrassed...;0)

Hows it going so far :dry:i am still waiting :( i am hoping it is going to happen this week fingers crossed,but as John said,the admin is a joke,i have had no letter for a date and where to go,so i rang them up on friday and got all the details i needed.
 The lady i spoke to was not the secretary to the consultant but she did say that the secretary is very slow >:(,i did my best to keep calm :mellow:.
But it may get cancelled yet even on the day,i will keep you informed of progress if any.Lillileaf

These lurkers are an awful curse
I miss them on each picking
A broad bean sniffing dog I’ll get
To give ‘em a damn good licking!

He’ll penetrate their leafy lair
They hide, with nothing showing
But he’ll have ‘em firmly by their stalks
My saucepan’s where they’re going!

You'll know when it's ready as the smell could fell cattle at ten paces...

Hi Bill

I read somewhere that you mix 10 parts water to 1 part comfrey. I've stewed  a drum full for a year now and will be giving the runner beans a boast with it next weekend.
Hope that helps

I have started off some comfrey leaves in a tub with water. How long does it take for the nutrients to leech. And then do you dilute or feed it neat ...thanks BB

John:I thought that was an unsurvivable  event! Glad I was wrong and you're still here.   :D

I'm not always logical, my memory can be iffy and my right arm not as strong as it should be, but still here to enjoy life!  8)
Apparently in those days you needed an injection of something? within an hour. My son-in-law (a first aider for P&O ferries) recognised something was badly wrong and drove like a lunatic and got me from Dover to Canterbury hospital in time. I'm eternally grateful to him and the A&E team for realising what was wrong with me immediately.

The moral of the story is -  if you ever get a sudden onset headache that feels like you have been whacked on the head with a cricket bat, get yourself to hospital PDQ  ;)

Like others I don’t have beans yet but this really made me smile! I have posted before about how I find myself trying to sneak up on runner beans as they’re hiding from me!
