Exciting times in the veg plot!

I have just harvested the first broad beans of the season - so looking forward to shelling and cooking them! Also picked today were peas, radish, courgettes, cauliflower and spring cabbage - although these have been ready for a week or so. Soon the greenhouse stock will start, toms, peppers, chillies, cucumbers, aubergines...drool... It is so great being able to eat our own veg, cheaper too! I will be stocking up the freezer soon with things to last over the next few months, may get round to making some chutney this year too especially if we get lots of green tomatoes left.

A couple of helpful things I've written can be found here - veg tips!
