I know why they do it.

It's an adorable little project and the child gets to marvel at how, from a tiny seed, a plant will grow. It's green and it's important and I get it.

But now what?

This is a broad bean plant, people. Broad bean.

And me, a legume fan from way back, must admit to finding the broad bean even a little too broad for my tastes.


I'm not saying it's one of the big issues. I'm not, you know, awake nights thinking about it.

But still. What becomes of the broad bean seedling that no-one wants?

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.
