One of the best parts of having you own veggie patch is being able to pick only want you will eat at that time. Why buy a whole head of broccoli, huge bunches of spring onions, celery etc that you wont use.
Tonight I went in search of some broad beans but unfortunately they are still stretching out and growing but I did find some beautiful purple snow peas and about a small head of broccoli. Adding some spinach that is growing like a forest and we had the perfect sized veggie portions for our night meal and the rest is still in the patch growing not sitting in the fridge dying. FRESH IS BEST!
