I put broad beans in water to soak overnight. I will plant them mixed in with my onions.
These sprout better if soaked 24 hours before planting. Broad beans are a cool weather crop, more like peas than warm weather beans.
Like others in the bean family, Broad beans fix nitrogen in the soil, and I can save seeds from this one and my Bolita beans without worrying about cross breeding. This bean dislikes heat and no problem about that here in the mountains, even relatively warm days are followed by cool nights.
It was sunny today and beautiful, but stayed cool.
