Spring Legume Harvest

We picked a heap of our peas and broad beans today. The peas have gone crazy lately and the yield is rather impressive for only 2 to 3 rows of peas (and overall I only sowed about 15-20 seeds!!)! Only a few of the broad beans were ready – the plants are loaded but most of the pods are still a little too small to pick. We had some of the peas tonight for dinner – which were so delicious that we didn’t even bother shelling them, and cooked them whole. We plan to freeze some of these, too, to eat while we’re waiting for the next crop.


Broad beans.
