Veg Garden (Week 7).

In the veg garden this week there are some nice Broad Beans coming along. As you will notice they aren’t actually in the garden yet but have spent the winter in the unheated conservatory. They would have been ok outside but I why put them to the test if you don’t need too. I’m hoping they will reward me with a few extra beans to say thanks for letting me stay inside all winter.

Hi Bob, I've been neglecting you and my other readers lately. I got here just in time for planting season. I will have to look up broad beans, we may not have them in the States.

I like sweet peas, maybe we could plant them someplace around.

Mrs. Jim is intrigued with the English, Scotish and other European gardens. Most of us don't have the large size estates needed to have everything.

Gday Bob, Gees ive missed a lot here in my absense.. I think ive told you I just love home grown broadbeens so yummy.. All your plants look so healthy and im sure they will give you an extra feed or after keeping them well sheltered from the elements.
As for sweet peas you just anwered a querey I had.. I planted out sweet peas in a trough like container on my fence a few had little shoots but all dissappeared so replanted.. I was blaming birds,, but next door has a few chooks and i have caught a couple of mice, are now there lays the blame.., always keep the traps set for that reason.

I've only just planted my broad bean seeds. I always start them off under glass, I fear that in the open there are too many pests that want to nibble them!

I just love that word conservatory...we rarely use it around here. Love it.
