The year before last I, along with everyone else growing them on my allotment site, ended up pulling up the blackfly infested broad beans.
Because of that I didn't bother last year and wasn't going to this year either. However I did, there's been no sign of blackfly and today I picked the first pods.
I'll almost certainly grow them again next year but I do wonder if this was a one-off success.
Whenever I log in and see this post, I feel Im being mocked!
My lack of broad bean prowess rubbed in my face!
