To dig in. Prepare bed for potatoes. Note the lean towards the sunnyside!

Nigella “Love in a Mist” seeds to collect.

Broad(fava) beans. Marvel – seeds collected from last year’s crop. Beans survived both snow and frost. Alas, the peas are not in such good shape. I replanted some last week. I think that might work better up here in the Mountains. Plant peas once the days are longer.

* Actually, these are not broad beans (aquadulce) that I saved but the last of the Egyptian broad beans hence the purple flower.  More miracle than marvel, is that I discovered this by looking at my records. Further the seed saved beans are the ones that were planted at my mother’s place – thank you records!
