Can I plant Fava Beans in with my late corn?
I'm an inexperienced gardener, learning as I go, reading, researching, and relying on the expertise of others (such as yourselves!).
We are now putting in a variety of fall crops. I've learned that fava beans will overwinter here, and I'm thinking to plant the fava beans (Windsor) with the small block of late corn that is growing now (6'x2' raised bed, deep, healthy soil, condensed planting).
The beans will outlive the corn, but my thinking was that the corn stalks would support the beans throughout the winter until harvest. A modified "Three Sisters" planting, although in fall/winter rather than spring/summer. The dry corn stalks would have to come out after the beans were through.
Is this a good idea or a bad idea? Suggestions would be appreciated. We were given fava beans to eat last spring, and quite enjoyed them, so would like to try growing our own.
