My visit to the Lottie last Sunday ended with the planting of some more Broad Beans - 'The Sutton', this time. Andrew sowed them actually, I watched and took pictures for posterity, oh, and wrote the label - I like to think I helped.
To start off with, Andrew had to do his favourite thing ~ roll down the top of the Multi-propose Compost bag. It's the little things in life that make him happy. Again, on his request mind, I was there to get that exclusive photo of the moment as it happened ~ he's hard not to love, aren't you sweetie!
We only did 6 pots, (we already have 8 very happy and healthy 'Aquadulce Claudia' planted in A1, as you know) but I'm interested to what this 'The Sutton' has to offer; we grew 'Aquadulce Claudia' last year and I loved them so much. While the Hubby put some compost into the pots I did the fun bit and ripped open the seed packet, I get rather excited to see what they look, feel and sound like in my hand (I'm obviously easily entertained myself!). Then, it's easy to guess what I'm going to say now.... 6 were planted, 1 per pot and then they were covered with more compost and given a darn good watering. I also told them to "grow you wee buggers'' as I am wont to do, a la Mr Titchmarsh.
Look at the packed Cold frame now! Lots of babies to coo over and worry about.....
