Vegetables growing in the backyard
This year, for the first time ever, I decided to grow fava beans.
I do love to eat fava beans in stews, as a spread, or in soups.
But I also wanted to try to grow our own in the backyard.
So here are four plants in a very large container.
So far, they are producing a lot of flowers, and look very healthy.
We'll see how they develop.
We love to eat cucumbers, and usually I've been lucky enough to locate organic Marketmore cucumbers.
But since I couldn't get any, we are growing English cucumbers instead.
I hope they are as delicious as Marketmore, which have very small seeds and are quite sweet in taste.
And here is our first tomato blossom of the season!
Now the bees just need to visit and pollinate.
