Lockdown does strange things to the mind..... and so I wasn't sure whether I was just imagining things when harvesting some potatoes this week. But no those purple potatoes that were being unearthed clearly were meant to be .....purple..... (or Salad Blue to be exact)! But would it be a case of looks being only 'skin deep' .....?
As we fast approach mid-summer, there's an abundance of colour wherever we look. But spare a thought for the humble legume. From deepest scarlet to delicate shades of lilac and cream, the humble garden bean can add beauty and colour to the vegetable plot and beyond.
