Beans are blooming

Very excited to see that my broad beans are flowering. I sowed these last October, managed to keep them alive in the cold frame over the winter, then planted them out in one of the raised beds towards the end of March.

At the same time, I sowed some more broad beans in between the rows so we should get beans ready at intervals later in the summer – they haven’t all made an appearance yet but this one is looking pretty healthy so far:

    They look good. I sow mine direct in the spring but they are still very small. Some years they’re okay but other times get badly affected with black fly. xx
