First harvest of broad beans...

I love broad beans and so am very happy to have harvested the first ones. I have been looking at them for a few days but finally managed to pick some.
 I started the first ones off in pots (in February, I think) , kept them in the greenhouse and then planted them outside when they filled the pots. I started a second lot straight into the ground.

 I made them in to a salad with a little garlic, oil and lemon juice plus seasoning. Yum.
Also a rather respectable Little Gem without too many slug holes.


  1. I was intrigued by your blog title - had to check it out - you need to add something so that people can become members - I don't really do google plus.... I would like to be your fist member :)

  2. Thank you. I think I have added the right button now. I'm still getting to grips with this technology and am pleased when I can do something without help from a teenager! Hope to see you again soon.

  3. Well done - I am now your new email follower :)
