You were supposed to be ground cover!!!

I had a slight scare with the favas today- after 2 weeks of misty cold weather yesterday was actually a little warm. The favas decided to go on strike and I woke up to another cold day- and some half-wilted favas.

After I had a small panic attack- mom and I decided to just water a ton and hope for the best- and as you can see by the picture my mom took, the best happened and they’re fine.

But holy hell, these favas were only supposed to be green compost for the spinach in a few months and here I am babying a variety of fava bean, that while technically edible, is meant for crop cover….

And ooh it’s starting to flower!

Also my dad won’t stop making triffid jokes.

Price of growing plants in my house really.
