Magic Beans

Every few days or so for the last month I have been searching the earth looking for fava sprouts. Fearing a repeat of last years pea situation – where I planted the seeds early and they just rotted or were eaten – I decided to replant the beans. I planted broad bean seeds purchased from the Hornby Island Coop for $3 – the label says that they are from Gordon Bio Farm in Fords Cove. The seeds were about twice the size of the last seeds that I planted and had a black stripe on one side. Hopefully they will grow this time.

The arugula and spinach has started to sprout as have the first few radishes…

Next week: potatoes!
