To Marin Cilic for winning his first ATP 1000 Masters title. Commiserations to Andy who was really struggling all week, with tiredness, shoulder and back injuries and eventually a cold. Onwards and upwards!
Our broad beans, although performing reasonably well, seemed to go from being ready to pick, to being over, in a very short space of time. Coupled with the uber dry conditions, I decided to leave them on the plant to dry.
We podded them between us, laying them on kitchen roll, on a tray to finish drying:
We have left them on the windowsill to eat fresh as they finish ripen. We still have several pounds in the freezer from last year. What a contrast!
