Howdy Folks:

The Territorial Seed Company, Winter 2010 Catalog has a section on planting Legumes (peas and beans) in the fall for a spring harvest.

Included are,

Cascadia Peas - 229 days. Interchangable with snow peas.
Oregon Sugar Pod II - 210 days. Non-climbing dwarf vines. A snow pea.
Canoe - 250 day. Packs more peas per pod than any other variety.

Broad Windsor Fava Bean - 240 days. Hardy to 12 degrees F. Sturdy bush bean stands 4 feet tall with 4 to 5 inch pos.
Negreta Fava Bean - 240 days. 9 to 10 inch pods. If the beans are allowed to dry on the vine they have an intense purple color. Height 3 feet.

I have never grown Fava Beans so I did a bit of research.

Rodale's Ultimate Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening states in part...
"Favas thrive in cold, damp weather and are also known as Broad, Horse, or Cattle Beans and are one of the world's oldest cultivated foods. They are second only to soybeans as a source of vegetable protein...much more common in Eurpoe than the United States..."

Burpee's "The Complete Vegetable and Herb Gardener", states in part..."Grow Favas as you would peas. Because they are cold-tolerant, there's little advantage to beginning indoors, but sow seeds as early as your soil allows. Plants that mature their beans in hot weather are suceptible to insects. Germination occurs in about two weeks in 50F degree soil. Set seeds one and one-half inches deep (deeper still in warm regions or in light, sandy soils) three to four inches apart, in double rows or beds, and install supports immediately so that plants don't fall over as they develop. Thin to 6 inches"... {In a Square Foot Garden that would be 4 per square}

God Bless, Ward and Mary.
