Beans Carburettors & Paint At Ryedale Folk Museum
Today on the kitchen garden I got some broad beans sowed. This variety are called the Sutton. They don't grow as tall as other varieties so hopefully won't need staking. Just sow them in rows in fertile cultivated soil 2'' deep a foot apart and a foot to 18''between rows.
Meanwhile in the workshop Raymond was busy giving the cultivator a makeover.
New volunteer Nick was cleaning the carburettor on the muse um's Lister D stationary engine.
The old Allis Chalmers benefited from some TLC and was soon running.
