TASKS FOR YOUR VEGETABLE PATCH IN AUGUST BY MARTIN FISH

Dwarf French beans should be producing plenty of thin pods at the moment and the secret is to pick little and often. This ensures the beans are young and tender and it also encourages more pods to develop. Ideally, spend a little time picking every few days.
