Beans with GPS?  
Is there anyone out there from the Southern Hemisphere? Anyone who grows runner beans?

I'm just asking because all my runner beans are twining clockwise up their poles. Do they do it in the same way in the Southern Hemisphere, or is it the same all over the world?

Actually, I'd be interested to hear from anyone with runner beans. Or tomatoes. Or peas. Or beetroot... Yes, my life is that sad. Term is winding down, my OU course is over - now I'm obsessing over the garden. I may need therapy.


Actually, I am feeling weird (as icon). I've had a horrific headache all weekend, all my joints ache and I'm queasy. Some generous child has given me another bug.

It's not urgent - I'm just curious. We even wrapped one of the beans round the pole anti-clockwise, and by the morning it had corrected itself. Interesting.

Beetroot. Never done them before. Our carrot crop last year was pitiful (two inches long, v v thin, times 5). These are sprouting better, so more success immediately! What I'm not sure about is thinning out. I'm kind of imagining the width of a beetroot and giving them that amount of room. What do you think? (Love cooked beetroot, BTW.)
