This year, I wanted to try growing different varieties of vegetables in the garden. However, I was scared to spend a ton on seed packets for plants I've never grown before. So, I did some seed swaps so that I could try new veggies, to see if I liked growing them. I got these Edamame seeds from Allison over at The Life of a Novice. Of the 5 seeds I direct sowed, 3 germinated. All three have pods growing. I am so excited. I love Edamame steamed with sea salt. It is absolutely delicious and incredibly healthy. These were so easy to grow, they will definitely return to my garden!
