Fava Beans. Progress Report. 4.22.16
Fava Bean "Windsor" 4.22.16
Favas are blooming at about one foot tall. I was concerned about the extra warm weather, into the 80s but now it's down into the 60s and tonight into the high 30s. So the cool friendly favas should be OK.
The photo blurring is due to taking the photo through chicken-wire cage. Necessary to keep herbivores at bay.
