And don't forget, not only are they pretty but broad bean (and pea) flowers are edible too!   :yum:

My peas are budding but not flowered yet - I'm quite excited as the shallots I planted out last week and the red cabs look like they're taking ok and the runner beans are starting to grow again so things are looking up :)  Still got a few tiny PSB sprouts to eat but salad leaves are ready to start cropping now so at last I should be on the homegrown more and more, and giving Mr Tesco and co a bit less :D

I don't like broad beans so didn't grow them this year - am wondering if I should have put a few in to make something of them since they did well last couple of years ::)

I've got loads to do, sweetcorn ready to plant, french beans, and more leeks, not even started sowing my salad yet, not enough hours in the day.
