Broad bean

Broad bean, sometimes a lot of cultivated culture were suppressed from our gardens, "Americans" (beans, potatoes, corn). Used to feed young juicy green beans, unripe, and dried beans, a can, and young leaves for salad. Small is required for heat, because the young plants withstand temperatures down to - 70C. Sow as soon as weather conditions allow - as soon as possible. He likes heavy soils rich in limestone, which are on the Autumn was pognojena manure. Before sowing the seeds conveniently overnight soak in cold water. Sown in homes (5-6 grains), a space 40 x 60 cm, or in rows 40 cm spacing and distance between 25 cm and depth of 5-8 cm. During the growing season, if necessary, to water, because drought greatly reduced yield. If plants are lush, should provide support, not to prostrate.

It is recommended pinciranje peaks above 10 - Oct 14, because it retains the growth in height. As the pods, are harvested while they are young and fragile, and while the grain is still poorly developed.

  2. Wow, a vegetable blog. That's the first! :)

    I don't mind the broad bean, as long as it's prepared properly, you know? Like, it tastes great in a soup. That much I can say. :D

    Also, just came to mind... It would be great if you could, every once in a while, put on a recipe based on the vegetable you were featuring that day. You know, a kind of a "here's the vegetable- here's what you can do with it" type of thing. ;)

    Anyhow, nice blog; following, mate! :)
