|19 Nov. Note Callicarpa bush at right...|
But there were still a few pods to be had...
I cut down the plants and put them in one of the compost-bins, and then dismantled the canes and the wooden supports that I had so optimistically constructed for my intended plethora of cucumbers.
This then was the last crop. Not a lot of pods - only 60 grams - but they'll be OK mixed in with something else.
Next year I think I probably won't bother with cucumbers, but might use the big tub for beans right from the start. This variety, "Cobra", is one I have grown for many years now, and I find it to be very prolific and very reliable. If you leave the pods to grown to their maximum size they get huge, but susprisingly never seem to go tough or stringy.
