A new crop to try is fava beans, not for their beans but for their leaves. I harvest the leaves as the plants are flowering and they were still tender. We just planted them once with the dry beans. They grow more like a bush bean than a pole bean. They taste amazing. Sweet like spinach or more so with a little pea shoot flavor thrown in. I sell a 2 oz bag for $3. People are always looking to try new things.
