Broadening our horizons
We have had a good broad bean crop this year. We have harvested 9kg of beans which are now in the freezer. The goats and chickens liked the empty pods.
Beans are full of protein, minerals and carbohydrates so they are one of our most important crops. As well as using them as a vegetable side dish in main meals, we will also be using them to make veggie burgers and sausages. Watch this space!
