|Aquadulce Fava Bean Seeds. 2.27.16|
The Aquadulce Fava seeds were larger compared to Windsor. I wanted to compare the two types.
Also a bit of an experiment, I planted 1 row on their sides, and 2 rows were planted hilum-down. I read that hilum-down results in faster growth. We'll see what happens.
Also snow peas, Mammoth Melting.
I covered the raised bed with bird netting. In the past, zero-germination of peas appears to have been caused by birds, who seem to regard a freshly-planted pea bed as a sort of Easter egg hunt.
Temps in 30s and 40s at night, 60s during the day.
