Garden redesign - pictures

Back in November, my gardening friend Edouard asked me if I wanted to incorporate a little piece of his plot into my plot.  How could I say no?  When we were finished with the work, his daughter dropped by and took some pictures of the garden.  The tall plants in front of me are fava beans - they were crushed during our snowstorm in Dec so I have no idea if they will bounce back.  The older Italian man in my garden (who has a FABULOUS garden) tsk tsked when he saw the fava plants - he told me he plants his in Feb and that I did it too early.  We'll see what happens, that's what gardening is all about, trying new things.

  1. Very nice! You'll have to post some photos in July when it's in it's glory! I'm afraid I've never grown fava beans - you can overwinter those?? I think peas will be the first thing I direct sow this year - maybe spinach, too.
