The broadbeans are coming in thick and fast, and I’ve suddenly remembered how much I dislike podding them 😂

Regardless of my ill feelings towards podding, these are still one of my favourite autumn/winter crops.  Did you know that as well as green, you can also get red broadbeans? And varieties with crimson flowers rather than the usual white and black? 
If the idea of eating them brings back some ghastly childhood memories (pro tip, they actually taste delicious when they haven’t turned grey as a result of having all their life and nutrients boiled out of them, compliments of your mum) then grow them for your soil, because broadbeans are fantastic nitrogen fixers

If you’re keen to rip in and get some of these planted, here’s a couple of tips just for you:
🌱 I find soaking the seeds overnight works a charm for successful germination
🌱 You can direct sow them but if your soil is particularly wet or you’re going through a rainy patch, sow them in pots and then transplant (you don’t want the seeds to rot)
🌱 Broadbeans can get quite tall and will often require some staking
🌱 Due to height they do best in a sheltered position away from strong winds
🌱 if you don’t have the height or space available for full sized plants (or don’t want to stake them)there are a few different dwarf varieties available 🌱 They like a lot of sun but will cope with some partial shade
🌱 They make a versatile plant for eating as you can also eat the tips of the shoots as well as the beans

And if you don’t enjoy eating the beans, perhaps you could try faffing about with double podding, but you know my thoughts on that one 😉.

|To transplant, cover roots with 0.25-0.50 inch of fresh soil. If the mother leaf is well attached and healthy, I keep it intact for as long as possible.  I give roots 5 days to adjust before initial watering. They draw plenty of moisture from fresh soil as they acclimate. Gradually increase sunlight. ☀️

Many sempervivum are cold hardy and can survive temperatures below zero. I’ve had the most success propagating them from cuttings in soil, instead of individual leaves. Given adequate room to root, they may quickly takeover. ☀️.

Sitting here planning my 2020 garden. I try to map everything out before end of year to ensure all the new varieties of seeds I plan to order are still in stock. Like every year, 2019 had its ups and downs, from aphids, a decimated squash crop, to a tomato ripening ordeal...through it all I have learned so much from failure! 2019 was also the first year I went full force with trying new flower varieties. I feel like I created a whole new ecosystem by doing so!  Chuffed to adorn my home with many bouquets during the season as well as exciting herbal tea blends. Learned what brassicas I should and should not grow and even harvested my 1st romanesco after trying for 5 bloody years! 2019 also brought a small but first ever grape harvest...can not forget about that! Many happy memories in these pictures. Thank you everyone for sharing an absolutely amazing gardening year with me and cheers to an epic 2020 🍾 Wishing each of you a joyous holiday season, a Blessed New Year, and happy garden planning!
