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