Edible Garden - Peas & Beans

Episode 1 of 6 
Alys Fowler attempts to avoid shop-bought fruit and vegetables and live off her own home-grown produce. It's no easy task because Alys doesn't want to turn her garden into an allotment, so she's growing her fruit and vegetables among her flowers. 

Alys will focus on different foods and show how anyone can grow, cook and eat from their own garden - even if they live in a city. 

Peas and beans are prolific vegetables but they also look beautiful in the borders. Alys makes delicious broad bean falafels and pea shoot cocktails, and forages for willow to make plant supports. And she has two new additions to the family - her chickens!

I always think these little things are so expensive when you see them in a pastry shop window or on a desert menu but once you see the amount of work and time involved in making them the price seems a lot more reasonable. Way too beautiful to eat.
