Mean Beans

I have been pulling broad beans for about a fortnight now. The crop is reasonably good, but despite the support system which I put in place the winds have definitely played havoc with the plants. They are lying at various angles of repose. The flowers did however set well and I should have a good few pounds of produce for stashing away in the freezer.


With the yield not having been affected unduly by the buffeting of the wind I know that I should not object too much, but I don't like things being untidy. I will have to devise a more full proof system. Perhaps wide mesh chicken wire stretched horizontally at various heights would do the trick. Next year I will have the problem solved.
