Scarlet Cambridge Broad Beans

What have I been up to. Work, work and more work which is why I haven't posted much lately. Why? I've been trying to save madly for the two months I need off work after I have my operation but today just to cheer my self up a little bit I planted some Scarlet Cambridge Broad Beans that were sent to me by Scarecrow from Scarecrow's Garden after I'd expressed an interest in them from a post Scarecrow had about them.

So I cleared a spot of veggie garden, attacked it with a digging fork and happily planted my seeds. All I have left to do is stay on top of any new emergent weed growth and watch them grow.

What Scarecrow says, Old English Bean has scarlet-purple bean seeds and green pods on 1 metre stems. Young pods can be cooked fresh or dried.
Beans are tender and a little smaller than other varieties.

Sounds neat to me.

Nothing cheers me up more than doing a bit of gardening.

Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog
in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
Many thanks, I appreciate it!

Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme
or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.

If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

Hello! I am about to begin my own blog and was wondering if you
know where the best place to acquire a blog url is?
I'm not even sure if that's what its called? (I'm new to this) I'm referring to "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=7677496750939268931&postID=529346755552231934".
Exactly how do I go about getting one of these for the website I'm building? Cheers
