Cool Beans

I like growing  beans. But most types prefer warm soils, so you can’t plant them too early. I did not know until this year, that there’s actually one type of bean that can be planted much earlier because it does well in cooler soils. These are fava beans, also called broad beans, and the specific variety is ‘Sweet Lorane Improved.’ They were on sale, and I couldn’t resist. Here’s how they look so far.
