Spring has sprung our Quattro Spring Beans into life at Hadley. The first of April has brought us some welcome rain, which is the first since the beginning of March. In fact, I understand March has been the sunniest and driest since records began.
We have loaded the remainder 2002 harvest spring peas, which clears our grain store out for this season.
The recent warm weather has been ideal for the spread of Bean Weevil which are enjoying feeding on both our winter and spring beans. Their evidence can be seen above by the notching of the leaves. All have received an insecticide to prevent any more damage.
