With a completed new compost bin I had somewhere to empty the contents of the kitchen waste bin from home as well as somewhere to put the heaps of weeds that have collected during its construction. However first I needed to fit a baffle between the bins to stop debris falling down between the bins and rotting the wood.
I then stripped all the old climbing French (flat) beans from the haulms ready to take home as dried beans before pulling up both canes and plants and, as with the runner beans, slid the haulms off the canes into the new compost bin.
Having tidied away the canes, joining the others in the shed, I harvested some Cavolo Nero taking a last or two from each plant, one from the outside and one from near the centre. I then cut several heads of broccoli to take home with the kale.
