What are the pros? They survived! DELICIOUS.
What are the cons? No one dislikes these..
First experience with living, local fava. They grew! From seed, right out of the ground. Planted them on a whim. All around the saved from road construction wild fern and it's friend, mock orange. New raised bed, potato and lily neighbors. So I had added lots of coffee grounds, kelp, compost, worm castings, and a bag of pro-mix to the clay. I mean sand. You get the idea..? They are handsome. About 3-3 1/2' tall for me. Ants patrolled them, bees loved them, so no pest problems. It was an exercise in patience to wait for picking something that grew so large, that I had never seen before! Thank you, youtube gardeners. June 29 they were 6" tall. On Sept 15th, I was rewarded with the first pickings of perfect, creamy beans. 6-7" pods. About four beans, average. Will be planting the whole pack in a more wind sheltered location early (EARLY!) May. So I can eat more of them, for longer. Lightly smothered in my homemade alfredo sauce and noodles..
