This morning when Lucy the Puggle Dog and I went outside to fed the chickens, we discovered the whole backyard was covered in frost.
Lucy loved licking the frost off the garden boxes and barking at the grass. 😉 What a nut!
It was so chilly outside I decided to make the chickens some warm oatmeal for breakfast. Chickens living in suburbia have it rough, don’t they?
This being my first fall growing fava beans, I’m not exactly sure what I am suppose to do. Since fava bean plants can grow to about 4 feet tall, I wasn’t planning on putting a row cover over them. But now I’m second guessing myself. Have you ever grown fava beans in the winter? Does the frost and cold temps bother them much? Is there something I should be doing to protect them?
Check out the beets! They look so dark and mysterious.
It might be time to pull them, what do you think?
I’m new to this whole winter gardening thing and would love any advice I can get.
