Following on from my previous post, it got me thinking. Do you have an unlucky crop? You know, one veg/fruit that you just always seem to struggle with or have bad luck growing.
I do. Broad beans.
I hadn’t really thought about it before, about how much hassle they seem to be, for me I mean. But the weird thing is, I don’t even like them that much but I do enjoy the challenge of growing them (well it is for me anyway) and everything seems to come right in the end and I end up harvesting a decent yield!
Freak weather rotting off the seed in the ground, plants being earthed up by next doors cat while it does a toilet in my veg bed (nice), mice eating the seed (I think) oh and not forgetting a couple of years ago I caught muntjac deer helping themselves to the pods. Just a few examples of my misfortunes. Do you have an unlucky crop?
