What is this plant? It's sprung up out of nowhere, where I've stopped cutting the grass!

    It looks like a broad bean to me ! Are you near an allotment or bean-growing field?

    A broad bean?! That's so funny. The garden is stuck in between two fields that grow farm crops - maize, wheat, lucerne. And I've never grown any veg before. So no idea how it's got here. And there are about six plants scattered around the border where I've left the grass to grow. Very strange!!!

    This is the second poster we've had in the past couple of months who has had broad beans appear where none were sown .......... is there a Broad Bean Elf out and about in the UK?

    Maybe they have been buried and forgotten by squirrels!

    But where did the squirrels find ‘em? 🤔
