Broad Beans

Picked my first crop of broad beans today. Not many but enough for dinner.

I planted two lots, one batch of seeds I planted in the ground back in February, the other I grew in the greenhouse and planted out in May.

I don't think either have done better than the other, but certainly the number of successful plants from seed was much better from greenhouse raised plants. Probably only about a third of seeds in the ground germinated. Probably due to the cold spring.

I also picked another punnet of strawberries this afternoon. They are some of the biggest and tastiest strawberries I've ever had. Made a strawberry flan this afternoon.
