I never used to like broad beans, but now I think they are great both with skins on and without. When we had the allotment I would see them growing as one of the first plants for the year and I always missed the time to plant. We missed it again this time as the Square Foot Garden was not built at the time, so I thought I would have a go while we are growing late peas to do the same with late broad beans too. Since this photo was taken the four plants are now much taller and have many flowers, so once again fingers crossed they have the chance to produce something before the frost.
Next to the beans are the tomato plants which despite not being tied up to anything is still allowing a good large handful of tomatoes each day.
