Lurkers revisited
« on: May 19, 2018, 19:38 »
Beware folkes and folkesses. The season once again has arrived.
today I harvested my first crop of broard beans and lo and behold. as soon as I had finnished and looked round.
 There they were.  Two juicy pods just lurking there more or less laughing at me.

Well at least you have beans  :lol:  Mine are flowering, but no pods yet, lurking or in plain sight.

Same here... lovely broad flowers but no discernable pods as yet, and as for runners, they are only just starting to climb, but hopefully they will get there  :D :D

Like others I dont 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 theyre hiding from me!

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

Hell penetrate their leafy lair
They hide, with nothing showing
But hell have em firmly by their stalks
My saucepans where theyre going!
