broad beans

broad beans are starting to crop well. some gathered for dinner, some spare for the freezer(really like these for winter soups) have grown 2 types this year -aquadulce claudia and imperial green longpod. one sort is giving lots of smaller pods, the other a smaller number of large pods- about 8-9 inches in length. the former(probably but not certainly the aqudulces) has suffered more from blackfly.

growing a summer broccoli, green magic. noticed the heads starting to form today.

still picking feltham first peas, though there are fewer new flowers. rondo peas should be ready to pick and day now.
