Fresh Beans

Picked our first Fava Beans from the garden yesterday.  The Spanish call them Fava beans, others know them as Broad Beans.  In fact when I order seeds ( I get them from the Territorial Seed Company) they  list them as Broad Beans.
We often sow them in the Fall and then they come up in early Spring and are done by Summer, they can't deal with the heat.  But we had such a mild winter they came up right away and we're eating them the first week of Spring.  They were delicious.
Mac says he always remembers his Dad growing them.

The Freesias are in full bloom and smell like heaven.  In the other garden  the lemon tree is blooming and the orange tree is starting to bloom.
