Great to see the first of this years Broad Beans harvested (Vicia faba). Used since medieval times as a winter staple by drying beans and peas give a year round supply of protein rich healthy food. Great in soups or stews or as a side vegetable. Can be dried, frozen or bottled. Easy to grow, great to eat!.

Hi Graham, is there a plan or map of your garden available anywhere? I’d be really interested to know how you manage to fit everything in 🙂
Well the best answer is visit.
It’s a long way to come from Canada!
Well people do. We had a woman here from Canada for the weekend for our Forest Gardening Course, and a research visitor from Vancouver for a few days… Not to mention South Koreans, Brazilians, Australians and New Zealanders. Canada is just next door. But hey. Keep the carbon footprint low eh? We are only limited by our ambition.
