Beans and Peas

Spring has sprung and the pulses are pulsing. My sweetpeas have turned triffid and blocked off an entire pathway but they seem reluctant to flower. I've begged my neighbours to be patient and put up with the inconvenience as there's no way I can contain them, they're, quite literally, a force of nature. I've promised they can pick the flowers to their heart's content... as soon as they finally begin to bloom. At least there a buds...

I'm experimenting with scarlet flowering broad beans this year and they are LOVELY! If they crop as well as regular broad beans I don't think I'll ever plant the ordinary ones again.
