Flying purple sprouts

Yes! The purple sprouts kept their colour when I steamed them. I expected them to go green but no they stayed.

I know they look odd but they tasted very good.


These soya beans were also delicious. The first time we’ve grown them and the fresher flavour was worth it.

Looking forward to doing them again. It’s been great growing some different types of food this year.

Now that we have a second plot some of these things will get more room.

I didn’t expect the soya beans to yield much at all but we’ve had a couple of meals from six plants.

Each pod has two to three beans in it.
We cooked them in the pod and peeled them afterwards. A few minutes in boiling water and the furry pods were done.

    Sounds good. Is it hard to grow vegetables?
