Today I stripped six broad bean plants of their beans to make way for some more tomato plants. There are still ten broad bean plants standing.
I spent the afternoon shelling them, but not all in one go. I'd sew for a bit, shell some beans, sew a bit more, shell some more, have a drink and a sit-down, shell. Repeat. It was kind of fun. Mind-numbing fun, but fun just the same.
I woke up at 6 am today, and not by choice. Bloody hayfever. I ended up in the sewing room, drugged to the eyeballs, and made a big effort on the sunnyboy sewing. By lunchtime I had eight all made, and that was with my usual Sunday swim-and-coffee in the middle of the morning.
Eight down, eight to go.
