taking down the broad beans
When I got halfway I had had enough and left the rest for another day.
I would like to leave the tops to degrade on the soil and let the stumps re-grow some more beans, but I need the bed for the leeks which have been waiting patiently for a place to grow. Anyway I have had enough broad beans for the moment.
All the beans have been podded and sorted into sizes. All the small ones went into the freezer and the big ones have been dehydrated for soups and stews through the winter.
The shallots are ready to pull, in fact some of them were lying loose on the surface.
Now the maincrop onions are starting to turn over. Onion city, man!
