Garlic Update

The garlic is flourishing. However, something has eaten nearly all my broad beans. Doh. Still, they're not really one of my "essentials" so it's not a disaster. Big Dave down the Allotment said broad beans encourage pea and bean weevils which go for his peas so he doesn't bother with it. Anyone care to let me know what their list of "essential" crops would include?

You can still plant broad beans it is not too late.

My list is a bit long - essentially it is plant up every spare bit of land - saves weeding!

Guess the best bit of advice is to plant what you like eating and if space is limited, those things which you can not buy in the shops. (Different varieties even if they are the same crops)
