This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

fava beans are ripe

picking fava beans
favas through the fence 2 favas in the hand

The first ripe fava beans are at the back off my little patch and I didn't see them until I was walking by outside the garden. So I reached my hand through the fence and picked a couple. The young ones are yummy on the grill.

I have harvested all my broads and ended up with over a pound from a short row. I have about 3 plants remaining for seed saving so I will have some seed for you next season.

Really great to see seeds being swapped, propagated then swapped again all round the world. I have just picked the last handful of my broad beans. Such a gourmet treat at the beginning of the growing year.
