I had intended to sow some broad beans at the very beginning of February but you know how it is. Too cold outside for fiddling about with empty pots and compost.
However, it was beautiful today. I put the heating off before going for a swim (at the local leisure centre, not the nearest pond, lake or river) and I haven’t put it back on all day. So, when I realised I hadn’t fulfilled the promise to myself of sorting out the beans, I thought I had better get out there before dusk.
Only six pots will fit in the propagator at one time, so the plan is to do some successional planting. Once these six have germinated, they can move to another windowsill and then into the shed for hardening off before planting out. Taking it of course we don’t have any Beasts from the East this spring, thank you very much.
