I went down late to do some watering (still really hot and dry here) and deadheading. The first Ferline was about ready, but unfortunately has blossom end rot because the ground dried out – evidently completely! The Red Alerts were fine though.
The beans are not great, but I’m hopeful that the tiny buds on the vines will turn into flowers and more beans before it’s too late. The plants are all due a feed now too. Some water from the skies would really help though.
