Interesting stuff Gorbelly!

I pulled my fava's yesterday and we had enough beans for a yummy meal. I was pretty happy with my half a row. I left the roots in the garden to add their nutrients, and put the greens in the composter.

I really need the earliest possible beans here. As it was, they were competing with peas as our main veggie and we haven't eaten the Swiss Chard in ages. Soon the beans will be ready I hope!

I dont know about Fava Beans but I cant get one bean to set fruit in this heat.
Between the heat and rabbits I gave up and stopped watering the things.

Do you know your "Sunset" zone? We have some things in common with parts of Texas here, but our nighttime highs aren't warm as early. I start with the fall rains, but it's largely about the free water. They are setting fruit in February and March, and usually gone by May.
