You may remember that I posted some images of some rather squishy beans last month. I have researched like crazy and I still have no clue as to why my beans went black in their pods. I can only assume that something wasn't right with the soil nutrients as I have eliminated various root diseases, blackfly, and tell-tale leaf issues and I'm still clueless! Perhaps I should ask Gardener's Question Time? I think it is time to stop growing broad beans for a while.
