Finally, some beans! In all our years of allotmenteering, this has been hands down the worst year for beans. No peas, just a handful of broadbeans and the borlotti are sure taking their sweet time. Anybody else having the same problem?

The saddest broadbeans to have ever existed. Look at them, all tiny and withered. 2018 has not been kind to our beans thus far.

Today started out quite bright and looked as if it might stay reasonably dry so I decided to spend an hour or two on the lottie. I have cut down last years raspberry canes (Joan J an autumn fruiting variety) and cleared the area around the plants ready for a mulch. My carrot bed is also now empty and has been fortified with some compost and 6X fertiliser ready for use as one of this year’s Onion beds.
The master plan……..
I have covered over my purple sprouting broccoli again as the pigeons are ripping the new leaves plus it’s a good job I covered the broad beans from the start as they would probably have suffered as well. Bloody pigeons!!
