Last week I bought a bag of broad beans in their pods from M&S. They tasted lovely and I assumed they were from abroad but on the bag it says they were from Herefordshire.
How do they manage to do that? I always regard broad beans as cool weather veg that usually gets harvested at the latest sometime in June or maybe July.
Anyone tried to grow them to harvest in the Autumn?

Its the first really good downpour since the end of May!  Mostly drizzle yesterday.   I had fed my blackcurrants with BFB and it was still there so I went out yesterday evening to wash it into the soil.   

I hope there will be enough rain not to leave a dry patch down below in the soil. 

Then we a due for several days of wall to wall sunshine, though some nippy mornings.
I miss the large newspapers, for throwing over things to keep them warm.

Hopefully the mole will go away.

As some of you may know my current programme in preparation for me retiring from "allotmenteering" is to rearrange my garden at home.

Here is the result of yesterday's work when the Junipers were removed to expose my tatty old fence which I have never seen for around 25 years.

This morning I fitted new rails  to my knee high fence. ( the fence at the back is my neighbours work)

The next good day I will attempt to remove the Juniper roots which is not essential as these would be covered when I plant various shrubs taken from my herbaceous border in the back garden. However if I can remove them it will help me to put my shrubs where I want them rather than fitting them in around existing roots.

So it is all systems go!
