Sowing legumes.

After harvesting the last of our leeks towards the end of April, we laboriously dug the ground over (150 square metres), and on April 29th we sowed the last beds of broad beans (variety Witkiem) for this year, and two beds of Meteor peas, then on April 30th we sowed three beds of runner beans (White Emergo and Enorma) and erected their teepees.

Thanks go to all the volunteers who helped prepare the land and sow the legumes, as well as the people who donated bamboo canes to use as supports - and of course the tea fairy!
