Today is 'what happens to the water when a plant drinks' day. A nice little investigation involving glasses, ribs of celery and food colouring, set up first thing and concluded p.m. I hope the food colouring plays ball this year - last year it actually didn't work properly, which was a bit of a pain. Anyway, fingers crossed!
I'm busy collecting loo rolls and kitchen towel rolls for planting seeds. Yup - the sap has thoroughly risen and we're rolling!! (forgive the mixed metaphor here) I am planning to use the two arches I bought last year for runner beans. We love runner beans in our family, but only when fresh picked from the garden and tender. The stuff you get from the shops isn't worth the box they are lying in, I'm afraid. Tough and woody, mostly. So fingers crossed for a good harvest of runners this year!

Well, better go. School calleth. Have a lovely day, everyone.
