Growing Turmeric - update

A wonderful surprise greeted me in the greenhouse this week! I had almost given up hope on this turmeric growing! The cultural instructions were to keep it warm and wet and I didn't think it was going to make it. The Dim Sum Gardener very kindly sent me a piece of fresh turmeric root. This is a member of the ginger family. I look forward to watching this grow.

These Salford Black Beans are really prolific. After bad germination problems I have 4 plants which are really making up for it now. Kindly sent to me by Purple Podded Peas, these black beans are part of my Buddy Morris memorial vegetable garden. Any veggies with a 'black' theme.
