And we are off for 2016!

Bees ‘n Beans starts up today, and I am excited about the third run of this project. We've made tweaks, we've tried different methods, and I hope that this last year of my PhD will be the best year for volunteers - with (hopefully) all the kinks ironed out, and only snails to worry us.

Well. We would be very lucky with the snails, but a scientist can hope...

I’ll get some progress shots up here in due course, and when my very-early beans start flowering I can get the new hand-pollination video sorted out, so everyone is totally clear on what to do. Any other questions or concerns, as ever, do let me know.

Thank you very much for taking part – and happy growing!
