Starting the 'good life'!
I’m fairly new to the whole gardening gig but seem to have be bitten by the bug. I’ve a relatively small garden with borders on 3 sides, lawn and patio and two 8 by 6 raised beds which I use to grow veg.
So far I’ve had some successes and as many failures. This year my broad beans have grown fabulously, some being planted last autumn and some (to fill in the gaps) early this spring. My first harvest was last week and they were sweeter than any I’d ever grown before. However, I took my second harvest today and despite taking only what looked to be well-filled pods I was alarmed to find that many of them had no beans in at all…big fat pods with nothing inside but tiny black seeds! Anyone got any ideas why this would be?
