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.

Well, I thought since there are folks here from everywhere, my curiosity might be satisfied. We did try winding the beans round the wrong way, but they corrected themselves. Now, a class of Year 4 children don't know which way is clockwise...

It's been really dry here too. We installed two water butts earlier this season, but we still have to hose everything. Wouldn't be surprised if there;s a hosepipe ban soon. Good excuse for not cleaning the car, if nothing else.
