My 'Windsor' fava beans are coming up now in a 1/3 barrel Water Wise Container Garden, and Mike Johnson recently planted 100 in his plot at Big Small Farms near Bushnell. I think this is just the second time I've grown them my 12 years back from Denver, might be the first time. This edible Vetch grew like CRAZY in my Denver gardens and was not fazed by late hard freezes or snow, so I think they will like this damp cooler winter we are having. Very good nitrogen fixer and I love eating them dry and cooked like pintos, or like edamames when the pods are green and plump.
