Gardening in Southwest Washington State. Aiming for good food, sustainability, diversity, ecological balance. Learning from tradition, science, experience, and experimentation. Growing fruits, vegetables, trees, and flowers. Growing from seeds, cuttings, divisions, and grafting. Puttering meditation.

So far, so good. We had the first 2 pods for supper today, in a stir fry with tomatoes, peppers, garlic and onions, and mixed into scrambled eggs. All of those ingredients home grown. Nice feeling.
This variety is Star of David. They are a fat pod type, not long and narrow. I think the hand pollinating is helping, as well as the hot weather the past week - several days above 100 F.
