I planted my broad beans a couple of weeks ago. And they have already started to flower! The bees have been darting around them weaving their magic.
But something I have noticed is the sides of the leaves have those notches I told you about. This is a sign the pea weevil is about.
It happens every year, I’m not too worried. They don’t tend to kill a plant off, if it was in trouble it wouldn’t be flowering so beautifully.
Before you know it there will be huge pods bulging with wonderful broadbeans, I cannot wait!
Just sat here wondering what to have them with first, maybe a nice poached salmon on a bed of steamed kale smothered with broad beans in a garlic butter sauce…
Happy Gardening. X
