    Looks like a bean of some description (maybe a broad bean). Have you grown any in that bed?

  • No.   I think it might be a wild flower of some sort - Ill try that way.  thanks

    I'd have said bean of some kind too, but I'm wondering if it's from an everlasting sweet pea? A long time since I've grown those so I can't remember what the seed pods look like.
    What foliage is there @Maggie jones?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I believe the pickled green pods of radish are a delicacy.
