Just before the skies opened up tuesday afternoon, I was able to get several hundred fava beans planted in the dirt. Mother, with advanced stage parkinsons disease uses fava beans in tincture and peanut balls that treat her symptoms. Fava beans are one of the best green manures which will help build the soils biomass and ready it for succeeding crops, in addition to giving me lots of good beans for mothers medicine. Fava bean roots are strong and mine nutrients deep in the ground and bring them to the surface! If that's not enough, they'll all have pretty sweet smelling flowers to attract beas and other beneficial insects into the garden to live! I planted Windsor Favas and also Bell Beans, another smaller bean variety of the same species. I have 22 Welsummer Bantam chicks arriving in June and I'll have a few Kiko goats foraging on roughage and my fava bean forest by springtime.
