The compost bin has been working like the clappers and made enough space for the broad bean haulms to go in it. And not before time, as the tomato plant which has been living in the shed desperately needed to be out.
This plant has already got one tomato on it and now it is in the soil, I am sure that the colour will come back into its leaves. It wasn’t supposed to be alone, but the two seedlings which were planned to accompany it have failed to thrive.
Anyway, I’m very pleased with the crop of broad beans which came out of the raised bed. Of course, I forgot to take a photo until I had processed half the pods
but the total weight of beans came in at 650g. That doesn’t include all the ones I’ve already eaten!
So, my dream of having some of my own beans in winter is coming to fruition. And this year, not expecting to do any major groundworks (unlike last winter), I should be able to sow more broad beans in the autumn.
