This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Almost full size. I've picked a few already, but haven;t tried them yet.

Looks good Kathy! I'm still waiting on mine, really should have planted sooner. Seen a recipe for a broad beans & fennel salad, hope I get to try it this year...

Do you grow a fall crop as well? I also planted mine too late, or rather summer came early here! (midAtlantic) So, I got a handful of pods only. They were delicious though--I'll be trying in fall next time.

I tried a fall crop once, but was so far off on the date that the plants were only half grown by frost. I think its harder to plan fall crops. Good luck. I'll probably keep trying. Once you get a date that works, you are probably all set.

Those crimson broad beans taste just fine like many others. A bit small and not many in the pods which are small. But the wonderful flowers make up for that!
