Over Wintering Broad Windsor Fava Beans
Something is amiss. Some creature is nibbling on the fava bean plants.
More Broad Windsor fava bean damage by an unknown assailant.
Oh how lovely. The delicately veined thick succulent leaves.
Already branching out reaching for the sun.
I'm hoping the broad beans were planted late enough to ensure flowering in early spring when insect pollinators are around. Otherwise I might have to resort to hand pollinating with a q-tip.
