The second bit of bad news is that the bean covered archway collapsed under the weight of its bounty! Mr digandweed did point out back in May, as I optimistically planted seedlings at the base of the archway, that he thought it would not be strong enough and he was proved right! However, I was able to gather most of the beans before consigning it to the scrapheap and compost bin.

But the GOOD news is that we have a lot of different veg to harvest; sunny yellow courgettes, french beans growing strong up their wigwam, onions, garlic, potatoes and on the squash plants, the baby butternuts continue to swell.
Last night I made frittata for supper using potato, onion courgettes, beans and red pepper. Six eggs made enough for two generous portions. All the vegetables (with the exception of the beans which I cooked until tender and then plunged into cold water) were roasted in the oven before cooking with the eggs.
