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.
