We have a yellow alert for heavy rain for Bristol all day tomorrow so it seems prudent to try and finish the weeding in my Jubilee border today. when the forecast is dry till late afternoon. I collected 33 broad bean seeds from my Mr. fothergills trials which were so successful in giving me a fine early crop of beans, so will collect the rest today before they get too wet. I should have enough to make an October and February sowing as I did this year. I am leaving the roots in to make use of the nitrogen from their nodules. A very economical crop is the broad bean one. The Autumn cropping one with the French name has flowers on too. I do hope your migraine has subsided, Flumpy1. Keep up the good work of feeding the bees. I did enjoy being a judge. I found a great deal to admire in all the hard work that had gone into the entries.
