Plenty of lettuce, radish and green onions. A bit of broccoli. And a fava bean! My first one. I went ahead and picked it even though its too small – about 5 inches. I wanted to try it. Actually it didn’t taste ripe. I’ll let the rest get bigger.

Fava beans should be picked when the pods are 6-8 inches long, filled out with beans, but still green. Here’s the recipe for grilled favas I’m really looking forward to trying.

  • I’ve been curous about this grilled fava beans ever since you mentioned it in your blog . Thank you for the recipe, I hadn’t been able to find it. I’ll have to try it next year when I grow fava beans again.

  • That’s funny I was just looking at my broccoli yesterday wondering if it was just going to be small (due to the heat). I guess I’ll wait a while longer.

    Love your dog by the way – cute as can be!

  • We just got our first roma tomato the other day. The garden got started a bit late but the season in long here. I would have had more to brag about but the squirrels got the rest. Love your blog.

  • Its impossible to keep squirrels out of the garden.

    Congratulations on the first roma! I looking forward to mine next month.
