New season broad beans
The allotment broad beans are starting to come thick and fast - for the moment just from the over-wintered row but the others are nearly ready. I'm picking them young and small for now because there are going to be a lot of them! Although obviously I'd like some - well, a lot - for the freezer, I don't really want to start on that quite yet.
The peas, on the other hand, are proving a little disappointing. there are lots and lots of pods on a couple of rows but, despite the rain, they aren't filling. Hopefully sometime this week they'll be ready.
