I think I should reintroduce myself. I've been a member of this forum since 2007 but it's been a long while since I was on here. Due to moving house to a different county I've been plotless for 6 years. We now have a large garden and the very first thing I did within a month of moving was to erect a 35x12 polly tunnel. The garden isn't great for growing veg so it's full of fruit trees, chickens and my bee hives.

I put my name down for an allotment but was told the site was earmarked for housing and was being relocated. Anyway, long story short, the local parish council acquired a previously arable field from a local farmer and created a brand new allotment site just a couple of hundred yards across the road from the original site, a 5 minute walk from my home. So I am now the proud tenant of virgin plot of land on a brand new site. Because it was previously arable and apart from the odd thistle or two along the edge it's been ploughed, tilled, prepared and is totally weed free. A far cry from my first two plots. All I have to do is mark out the beds and paths and then plant it. There's going to be a toilet block, kitchen and cooking facilities, lockers and a full CCTV sytem. Oh, and for some reason the first two years are rent free. Can't wait to get started.

Last week I bought a bag of broad beans in their pods from M&S. They tasted lovely and I assumed they were from abroad but on the bag it says they were from Herefordshire.
How do they manage to do that? I always regard broad beans as cool weather veg that usually gets harvested at the latest sometime in June or maybe July.
Anyone tried to grow them to harvest in the Autumn?
