The broad beans are pretty milquetoast this year. Usually I have a dense thicket filled with snails, which I spend many irritated hours tying up, only to have them all fall down again in the faintest of breezes. But these ones are lacking in enthusiasms and even the snails couldn't be bothered.

Still, the few that are actually trying, are starting to flower, so there is some hope.
