    Chocolate leaf spot on the leaves?  or the black marks that occur on the beans when they're a little past their best?  in which case cook them and then pop their little jackets off and serve with parsley sauce - yum!!!

    We grew broad beans over the winter in an unheated polytunnel. Today we picked the last of the beans and cut the old stems down to about 3" above ground level. We found that new stems had recently sprouted from ground level and these are now bearing flowers. So we left all the new stems to grow and will continue watering to see what happens. Watch this space!
