We had a bit of a shock this morning when we arrived at the plot and saw the damage that Storm Ali had done – much, much worse than Storm Hector had been! The entrance to the site was a complete mess with bit of tree and branch all over the driveway and the runner beans and a few other things had completely blown over.

We cleared up the driveway and managed to resurrect the runner beans by making splints for the bamboo canes. Most of the roots of the plants were still safely in the ground so hopefully they will recover! We also got another very big harvest!
