Sprouting Colleens and Broad Beans

The Colleen potatoes I planted a couple of weeks ago in the conservatory are sprouting already. It's been pretty warm in there during the day.

I'm planning to plant Broad Beans this weekend - some in pots and some direct in the soil. It doesn't seem to make much difference to the success and productivity but it's fun to watch the progress of the potted beans from the warmth of the conservatory! I usually save seeds from one year to the next but this year I've bought a packet of 30 ( masterpiece green Longpod) because some of the saved ones have a bit of brown mottling which I'm a bit concerned about.
