Vetch pod

Vetch pod2

This is a vetch pod, scanned. I posted about vetch a few days ago. Vetch is a member of the legume, or pea family. This vetch pod looks a lot like most types of bean or pea pods. It is about 2 inches, or about 5 centimeters, in length. If you look carefully, you can see the seeds pushing out the walls of the pod.

Lovely, picture, Martin. Vetch is another of those gems from the hedgerow that I particularly enjoy near my home, too. Our rabbits are very fond of it. Where I grew up in South Africa we had another name for it, we called it "Lucerne". I remember eating it by the handful as a child.
