I've never seen broad beans in America, or maybe I just didn't know where to look.  I'd like to try growing them, and definitely eating them, but it might be too cold here....

Hi Jenny, great photos! You should definitely try growing fava beans, they grow well in my garden. You can plant them in the fall and they will overwinter easily. They're also great for your soil and will fix nitrogen from the atmosphere. You can find a few different heirloom varieties at Baker Creek seeds. Have a great weekend!

You really think I can grow them in Northern Ohio?

Sure, I'm on the eastern cost of Canada. Our winters can get pretty chilly. Favas need a temperature of 2 degrees celsius to germinate so if your weary of planting them in the fall you can sow them in the spring as soon as the ground is workable.

OK!! I am going to look into it, and find some seeds.... Thank you for the encouragement!!
