Broad Bean Robbery

I arrived at the plot this weekend looking forward to seeing the progress of my Broad  Beans - sown back in March.

To my dismay I found that four entire rows of seeds had been pilfered !

A very neat circular hole at each spot in the rows where seed was sown.

Exactly who - or what - is the culprit I don't know for sure.

I suspect a mouse - a view supported by my neighbouring plot-holder Richard - who has had similar problems.

This is the first time in years that I've not had a good crop of Broad Beans growing in April.

The Autumn sown batch failed - see my earlier blog post:

I hope its not to late to sow more - I'll be growing some in pots to plant out later.
