As I was giving the Suburban Farm a dose of fish emulsion, I was pleased to discover beans ready to be picked. That was fast! It seems like just a week ago–maybe two–I found little beans budding off the flowers.
This is the first year I’ve grown beans. They got a shaky start when I lightly mulched the whole Suburban Farm before seeds had emerged (oops!), and then there was no sun for a month.
I thought they were pole beans, so I’ve got a pole for each group of plants. But they are really short, so maybe they are bush beans?
Either way, I’ve got a small handful ready for dinner tomorrow night. I think Jacson will like them very much.
