Last Friday Jose took out the seed to the field to plant our first sowing of fava beans and peas. We mix the seed with a soil micro fauna inoculant. Root living bacteria fix nitrogen from the air and form nodules on the roots of the peas and beans. This is free fertility which helps that and subsequent crops.

We will continue to plant these crops every two weeks or so until late February as the weather permits. Harvesting begins in Early April.
