Tomatoes and beans

The runner beans are growing nicely and not yet munched by slugs and snails.  Tomatoes also settling in nicely - ranging in size from beef to cherry.

And finally, the square bed with courgettes and mangetout plus netting and prunings from the rose to deter cats.

Pleased to see that most of the bean seedlings have come up - runner beans, french beans and now the mangetout, which came up really quickly.

Disappointingly, only a few of the 'Yellow Pear' tomato seedlings have come up, none of the 'Gardener's Delight' and none of the lemon cucumber or cucamelon - unless they're just much slower to germinate.  Apart from the cucamelon - these were all from Seedy Sunday.

So far none of the flower seeds have germinated but the weeds are doing well.
