Black spots on Broad Beans

The leaves of my broad bean plants are all covered in black spots which start as tiny specs the grow untill the whole leaf turns black and dies.

The locals are very touchy about water rights - running a hose pipe off the acequia whilst building the alberqua nearly caused world war 3 :(
We've tried to negotiate for less water more often but we're stuck with our 16 hours every 16 days. It may be OK for 16 days but I'm doubtful.

Try barbequeing chicken livers - simply marinade in lemon juice then skewer and barbeque for 5- 10 mins over a hot bbq - unusual and delicious!! :wink:

Help Needed - Alternatives to chlorine for pools

We're currently building a water storage facility to irrigate our land and would like it to double as a swimming pool (yes it's hot working here!).

Hello from Las Alpuarras
