Broad beans planted
Broad beans are one of our staple crops. They are especially important as a source of protein and carbohydrates. This weekend we planted the seeds in bags we have in the past used for growing potatoes. We have a later variety still to plant but as a precaution against damage by the hens and ducks, we have netted over the bags.
