first french beans

Picked more runner beans.
The climbing french beans are just starting to produce, also the purple queen dwarf french beans, but only 3 or 4 so far.
Took out the psb, it has only produced a few sprouts and a lot of leaves, so its out.
More mouldy onions.
Potted up some more strawberry runners, I think there might be enough now for a new bed next year, I will have to have a count up.
Note to self for next year: when planting different kinds of runner beans for different purposes, don't plant them on opposite sides of the X-frame.  They grow up to the middle and then cross-over and get all mixed up with each other.  I can tell them apart when the flower is on, as the Czar's is white and the Enorma's is red, but both the beans look exactly the same. I had intended to use the Czar for drying and the Enorma fresh, but now I can't tell which is which.

The courgettes have lots of fruits on but none bigger than about four inches long
