I haven't yet picked my broad beans yet this year but last year some of the pods which looked big and promising had no beans in them. Which was rather disappointing.

I still had a large harvest tho'.

Does anyone know why this happens please. :)

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
