Yes pinched tops out to cut down on black fly but pods are too big now I suspect to cook and eat!,

Some pods have small beans other are totally empty except for a brown speck which I am assuming are undeveloped beans

The broad beans that I planted in autumn are coming up with empty pods! My spring sown ones are producing flowers so fingers crossed any ideas why this is happening? Never happened before!!

Be patient! Everything is later this year, I am itching to get my potatoes in! Go by the weather rather than season. Christine on the one show said that if you have weeds spouting then the earth is warm enough! So you could sow a row of beet root, I am going to sow some in the greenhouse today so we will see what happens. You do need to wait longer for leeks though!

Thanks for that. I can see your logic just worried potatoes won't get going! Have also grown peas in greenhouse which are ready tolant put. What do you think!

Would it work if I put fleece on my raised bed to warm the soil? I was hoping to put in first earlies this weekend or they are in danger of becoming first lates!!!
Would recovering them with fleece help them get started? I am in Hertford shire.
