Sowing Fava Beans and Planning for the Hungry Gap. Fava beans, known as Broad Beans in UK are a great crop for early summer harvest. Today I start sowing these hardy beans outside and look at what is available to harvest during the hungry gap of late spring and early summer. Sowing broad beans.
Byther Farm is a small organic homestead, designed and managed using permaculture practices. We aim for self-sufficiency in fruit and vegetables for increased self reliance and better resilience to the modern world. I recognise that we are unlikely to be truly self sufficient, but do the best we can. I share our home with my loving husband, Mr J and our cat, Monty.
We are a fifty-something couple who live on a smallholding in Monmouthshire, Wales. We are going green and creating a gentler, cleaner and more healthy life for our family.
There is a large organic kitchen garden with no dig gardening raised beds and young food forest in which to grown our fruit and vegetables.
We keep chickens and Aylesbury ducks.
