So far I've harvested over 2kg of broad beans from my (under) 1m x 2m raised beds. Probably still have another 1kg that I should be able to harvest.

Not sure if this is considered a high yield or not, but I'm very happy with it.

This lot (in the photo) is getting frozen so I have a treat later on in the year.

“oh you’re a baker, that sounds chill”
me: *blasting death metal, forming and panning 200 loaves of bread in 30 minutes* yeah i guess

big basil plant has turned a little bitter 😓 oops

Made my best smoothie so far this year! Not too watery, bananas a good ripeness.

To add, I'm always excited about growing garlic, but this year I'm extra excited. This is the first time in 3 years I've been able to grow the garlic in decent sized beds. Life circumstances & moving twice meant I had to grow them in pots for a couple of years, and the harvest wasn't as good.

Am hoping I'll get enough to bulk up what I can save to sow in autumn, save to eat myself over the next year, AND give some away too!

#Mullein blossoms in sugar will leech the flower properties into the sugar and naturally form a cough syrup over the course of several weeks. As the sugar collapses in the jar, you add more fresh blossoms. #HerbCrafting #Medicinal

Got to eat some peas grown by family and they were sooo good. I want to grow peas.

Thar they blow! All three #raspberry varietals are ripening. If I’m going to freeze fruit, now would be the time to clean the freezer and make room for a baking sheet to fit. #BackyardHarvest #SunDIY

Oats Recipe Thread (1/?) — Intro

I went out gathering today, with the goal of making something from my findings that I can eat on winter solstice.

So it'll be jam - saskatoonberry, Oregon grape, thimbleberry, trailing blackberry, elderflower, pineappleweed, rose petals, Stachys cooleyae flowers. Surprisingly no queen Anne's lace. And umeboshi, from underripe ornamental red-leaf plums (Prunus cerasifera) with some yarrow flowers thrown in for a flavor experiment.

The first #GoldenRaspberries have been harvested! These came off the canes very easily, so now I have an idea of the shade of gold that indicates fully ripe. #BackyardHarvest

My 'Lord Leicester' variety tall peas are doing really well in their containers despite the best efforts of slugs and snails.

And they taste *superb*. Definitely growing these again.

I mean, I don't know what they are like cooked, because I keep eating them raw, straight from the pods. But I don't think of this as a significant problem.

Instant pot split pea rice recipe for future reference #vegan 

I made some kind of split pea rice for supper without too specific of a plan, and it turned out pretty well! Sort of like a cross between risotto (texture) and split pea soup (taste).
