My spouse, our cat (she LOVES edamame!), and I just finished sharing a small plate of fresh edamame aka soy beans harvested from the rooftop garden. This first harvest came from one plant grown in a medium-sized container. The variety name is ‘Toyha.’ To be honest the taste was not unlike the frozen beans I have cooked up at home or purchased in Japanese restaurants, yet they SEEMED exceptional given that we grew them ourselves and watched their progress with eagerness since I sowed the first batch of beans in mid-June. I will add that they were much better than the under-sized pods I purchased at the Farmer’s Market last summer.
