My purple beans are up. The worm compost seems to have worked well. Less successful for the tomato seeds, though - around a hundred tomato plants came up and it has been impossible to distinguish those from the seeds I sowed and those growing from seeds in the compost. Mmm. Lesson learned.
Down at the plot, the purple Aran potatoes are earthed up and everything has that pre- growth- spurt neatness. Even the purple alliums.
Could this be why my new shoes are purple?
