Broad beans


Sowed a double row of broad beans; Aquadalce Longpod. These should be hardy enough to survive light frosts after they've sprouted, but the growing tips should be tough enough to deter black fly. With good weather there will be beans by July. The trench was filled with soil with some pelleted poultry manure raked in; I'll add some compost as a mulch when the seeds come through.

This heavy shower coming over Salisbury Plain sent me into the shed with a flask.
