Coco de Paimpol! Harvesting, storing & cooking. A love affair.

Today I am all about my precious Coco de Paimpol beans. It has not been a good year for them but here I explain what to look for to choose the perfect moment for harvesting in order to enjoy the beans at their best and how to store them at their best. I also talk a little about cooking them from storage.

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 106: Planting the Coco de Paimpol and thoughts on watering.

As soon as one crop finishes I can make space to put another one in…….today it was time to get the gorgeous Coco de Paimpol beans planted out. They are one of the harvests I most look forward to each year so it feels great to get them in the soil…..even on a scorching hot day………watering is beginning to take up the majority of the time spent in the garden……
