Snap peas and fava beans…

Image

Was very happy with our snap peas and fava beans this last season…
The above picture shows a sample of our snap pea harvest…
The six plants we had provided a continuous harvest for about a month and half…

Image

Normally, we’d just boil the peas lightly and have it tossed (along with other vegetables) with olive oil, vinegar, and some herbs…
Sometimes we garnish the salad with some coriander and its flowers…

Image

I sowed twelve fava seeds last October…
The germination rate was 100%…
The above shot was taken sometime in March, I think…

Image

We managed to harvest about 200 beans…
Not too bad…
Each bean is about the size of a man’s thumb…
Again, we take them lightly boiled…

    I’m really hoping my broad beans do well this year. I have sown about 20 but they are in a pretty shaded place. 200 beans sounds like a great result.

    I didn’t plant beans this year and I wish I had! Last year I had a ton of snap endo and we really enjoyed them!! I’ve got to make myself a note for next year!

    I tried growing fava beans but was unsuccessful, should try again. Your peas and beans harvest are gorgeous.
