I love broad beans, and they are so pretty. I ADORE blackberries. :)

It is a great time of year for fruit and so nice to pick it straight from the bush or tree. I am having blackberries and Autumn raspberries these mornings on my cereal. Pickled cucumbers are delicious. I plant my broad beans around this time of year for an early crop in May/June.

I've planted October broad beans for the several years but have had much better crops from spring planting in the last two years. I think it's because of the very windy conditions over winter, they've just got too battered.

Sounds like a very good idea to pickle cucumbers. And thanks for reminder re broad beans.
