A quick view from both sides of the garden
A barrow-load of broad bean plants ready for pulling the pods off and the ground released for planting leeks into dibber holes; there are more bean plants still to be removed, but it's raining hard here today. I cut the bean plants off at ground level (the tops will go in the compost after removal of pods) so that the roots and the nitrogen rich nodules will remain in the ground. In front of the barrow are two varieties of beetroot (Boltardy and Cylindra), they both look good and I think I could be in for some pickled beetroot!
The other picture is a view through one of the flower borders, it just appealed to Mrs Soggy.
