|Favas Ready To Harvest. 6.9.16|
They grew great. These were amazing plants, growing before almost I could plant most other kitchen garden seeds or plants. They were vigorous and problem-free.
I didn't know when to harvest. The beans have grown large, so I cut a batch today. After shelling them, I boiled for one minute, poured them into cold water, then peeled the beans.
I've never tasted favas before. They were delicious.

|Shelled Favas. 6.9.16|
Since I"m just now planting regular beans, this is a chance to to grow and harvest legumes long before the usual bean. The prep is a little tedious, as noted by others, but they are so delicious, they are worth the effort.
I ate a fair amount with no further prep. Others, we had on salad with lettuce, fresh snow peas, and sliced tomatoes, with a Ceasar dressing. Very good.
