Koite val. A form of flat bean.  Quite large. Have no idea what it’s called in English.

Didn’t pollinate well.  After seeing that I had planted the corn in a straight line Karan had alerted me to the fact that they may not pollinate well.  He had said that I may have to hand pollinate.  Unfortunately I didn’t get the time to do it.

Cuttings from my basil plants.  Just placed them in a cuppa water for about a week.  Have transplanted this one.  Let’s see how it fares.
