Earliest Plantings

Jumping the gun...I just had to plant something!

Peas and Fava Beans can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked. 

So, even though my garden still has a thin blanket of snow....the soil beneath was absolutely workable.

 Without hesitation, I wasted no time getting those peas in the ground.

 I have never planted Fava Beans in my garden before nor have I ever eaten them... They are known to be a cool season crop and can handle the cold.

This should be a fun experiment...

Let's see how they grow in my garden or if my family will even like them.
