My Winter Garden - Part Eight - New Broads in Town

Heads up! There's some new, beautiful young broads in town. I purchased organic broadbeans from Eden Seeds, my favourite supplier.

New Broads on the Block 1:

They took ages to poke their heads up. Two weeks in fact, but that is quite normal. There's 90 - 120 days between sowing and picking.

New Broads on the Block 2:

One secret of broadbeans is to not water them at all from the day of planting until two distinct leaves are visible above the ground, else there is a chance of rotting.

New Broads on the Block 3:

I planted 70 beans in various places in the garden. Some were devoured by slugs, some are being eaten as of today, some seem fine. I just read that sprinkling eggshells or cinnamon around the plants sends slugs running. Or sliding.
