My overwintered favas did well despite being damaged by frost a few times. I always harvest them all at once. I find it too difficult otherwise. The day I harvested the lot, I grilled some up in the pods and we opened them at the table and ate them with the interior shells on. If you pick younger ones, you can eat the whole thing like this when they are super fresh. Very nice for harvest day. The rest I blanch and freeze with the interior shells on. Then when I want to use them I defrost and shell. The interior shell protects then when frozen.
