Magic beans

Doesn’t look like much at the moment except the compost bins which I’m quite proud of but in front of those bins is a field of magic beans. Well not really it’s fava beans and I’m trying to get them growing to cover an area I have marked for more garden beds but also to see if the things will grow. I really didn’t do anything so if it fails I wouldn’t be that surprised. The area though is where the chickens used to be so you never know….
Compost Heap
My vegetable beds are still coming along as I’ve filled them with various humus materials and soil so I just need to transplant the seedlings into the raised beds at the moment. I’m thinking that I will only use the two long ones as my long term plans are to actually setup all my raised beds to be the same dimensions. I’ll be getting the wood this week or next and then I’ll build up the other beds and fill them in.
Vegetable beds
Seedlings are really coming along nicely. Using a mix of 2 parts compost, 1 part soil and 1 part potting soil. I’ll see how well this does. Maybe I should do separate mixes on the same seeds and then see which give the best results. That would be getting too scientific though but I may just try it out once I have stuff in the ground growing.
