Moving the broad beans
Two weeks ago I moved the broad beans we had in planter bags from the allotment to the back garden where they will be safe from the hens. The above photo was taken shortly after they were moved. They are doing well at the new location on the path at the bottom of the garden. Since them they have more than doubled in size.
Broad beans are an important crop. They store well but provide us with both protein and carbohydrates.
