Yes, it really is a vegetable! These are the blauwschokker peas - purple flowers and dark purple, almost black, pods.
There's fruit ripening - redcurrants and alpine strawberries just ready to pick and still masses of rhubarb. Apples have set and are starting to swell.
Picking more broad beans than we can eat from the allotment and the first few peas were ready today!
Waiting now for tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers from the greenhouse.
