In my Garden in July

THE BROAD BEAN HARVEST HAS STARTED!


Yes its time to Harvest broad beans again.

They are best picked young when the beans are tender and tasty.



A HOW TO  tip to 'get into' them!

 UNTIL I discovered this method.
Just needs a sharp vegetable peeler.




 At their best peeled and cooked immediately.
