Don’s Tower of Beans

If you haven’t seen it yet, Don’s tower of scarlet runner beans has reached over 11 feet, according to unnamed sources. The beauty of this plant is that, picking peas is so simple with really easy access and it looks like the crop of beans is endless.

This species originated from the mountains of Central America. It was most likely cultivated in the highlands of Mexico and Guatemala around 2000 BC.[6] Most varieties have red flowers and multicolored seeds (though some have white flowers and white seeds), and they are often grown as ornamental plants. The vine can grow to 3 m (9 ft) or more in length.[7] (Wikipedia)

When asked to comment on the beans, Havenwood Harry, the local stag, replied ” I haven’t tried them yet, but I have heard great things about them, and plan to try some soon.”

Wanted for Break and Enter (attempt)

Last week, during the night a report came out about a deer trying to batter down the main garden gate, in order to feast on…well almost everything. What the buck did not know is the the gate was built by Rod Bredin and his attempts brought him nothing but frustration.

Hopefully by now he will have got the message, but if you do see him, please remind him that Rod is working on installing security cameras and the local RCMP have been notified.

If he does eventually manage to get in one night, there will be little left to eat, so please check the gate when passing by!
