Just used raw fava bean leaves for first time in a salad. Very good and sweet, pea-like flavor. Need to plant more.

This last weekend I planted sugar snap peas, lettuce, spinach, mizuna and mache. I also have some Winter Density and Flashy Trout Back lettuces that wintered over. It's fun to already have a few leaves to throw into a salad.

What companies or organizations do you trust to get your seeds?
HELP! I recently moved from the City of Ypsilanti Michigan to the Township of Ypsilanti, Michigan to find that growing anything for kitchen use in the front yard is prohibited! I absolutely refuse to have a lawn, oh the wastefulness! How can I get the community I live in to see that gardens in the front yard is a good thing?
