My Costume, Flowers and Broad Beans

02 Aug

1   I have assembled all my 1914 outfit for the Wildworks event 100: The Day Our World Changed tomorrow and I’m really rather pleased with the effect!

3     For one reason and another, we have been rather late harvesting our Broad Beans and they needed double podding. So, as well as having some for supper tonight and freezing away a heap for later, I have made a scrumptious Broad Bean Soup with some delicious chicken stock from an organic chicken I cooked a few days ago and using all the skins and the biggest beans – two pints frozen away for a summer taste in winter. Success!

I love how the beans rest in their little furry pod

    Broad Beans, my favourite vegetable. I made two batches of soup this year, but ate the rest! Your outfit is just perfect, Sally.
