Green Manure.....I planted some farmers' field beans, broad bean type, as a green manure several weeks ago..they are now about 12 -15 inches high and one or two of them are showing flowers...when do i dig them or in late february?



I'd dig them in now but if probably makes little difference if you leave until February.

If you leave them, you might want to pick the flowers, though--unless you don't mind if volunteers come up and compete with your veggies, later.
