planting our broad beans

During the week, our friends at the Observer http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/allotment kindly sent us an exciting package. The children discovered that it contained a big bag of broad bean seeds – Aquadulce Claudia.

These beans are perfect for autumn planting and we have been growing them successfully for the past couple of years. They are the favourite vegetable of our head teacher Alan and he has happily taken them off our hands and enjoyed them for his dinner on numerous occasions.

We had a lovely empty bed ready for them so after we had removed the leaves and dug over the soil, we popped them in. There they will stay all snug and cosy over winter and should be ready in late spring.

It reminded me of the song ‘Cauliflowers Fluffy’ which we used to sing at school.

The children however, had never heard of it!
