My runner beans still seem to be standing doing nothing.
I went out to thin my Victoria plums, hardly needed to bother, just one branch where they were thickly clustered. I'll get some but probably very few to freeze. But I know that years vary so I stock up (though try to resist the urge to be like Joseph and keep 7 years supply). The Czar is doing well, need to thin that, and get rid of the suckers round its feet.
And must prune the wall plants so that I can get to the gutter, I've done a bit and it needed it.

Did I say I needed to thin the Czar plum. Well, I thinned what I could reach then diverted to picking gooseberries and blackcurrants. Picked a few ripe or damaged fruits last week then was busy with other things and came back to find that all the branches I couldn't reach last month I could now reach. 2 big branches were cracked and drooping in a tangle on the ground.
What am I doing indoors, I should be outside sorting it out and picking the remaining high fruit.
