This is what we are currently eating from the garden.
And these are what we are currently drying for replanting.
Broad beans are delicious, but they're also good as a soil improver (nitrogen). After I harvested all these beans I pulled up the plants and lay them across the garden bed. Then I raked wood chips over them (carbon). With this as one of our methods our soils are gradually improving season by season, making our garden increasingly productive.
A very merry solstice to you all.
