Hi Folks,


This is my first real year in the garden since I was 16 - I'll not say how many years ago that was but lets say you could still buy a new Ford Cortina at the time.

I just cut back my broadbeans and they have begun to flower again, in fact there are a few small pods showing, is it worth leaving them or should I dig them back in and plant some winter veg? any recomendation for a follow on crop?

Cheers,
Tim

worthwhile leaving them to develop if they are at the flowering stage. There is not much else you can sow or plant at this time of the year in the open. Over wintered onions are an option and it is too early to plant Spring cabbage.
