After the winds of the last twenty-four hours our climbing beans are now more “sprawling” beans. A number of the canes have clearly snapped and they don’t look good at all. Not entirely surprising, perhaps. Canes probably aren’t ideal for supporting a plant in that much leaf in such winds. The weather station next to the observatory is very sheltered and still recorded a record gust speed since I’ve had it running this year. So the beans are now on the list of things to get tidied up this weekend.
