Yellow Bush Beans, 6/14/11.
I borrowed the camera from work tonight to test it out (see above). I'm in the market for a new camera and have only had my camera phone, for…way too long (see photos below).
This is my first year trying to grow beans. I ordered Yellow Beans from Johnny's Seed catalog way back when. These are of the bush bean variety (as opposed to climbers) and only grow 2 feet tall or so. The beans are yellow and long, and we'll see what they're like. Who knows. I planted a crap load of them, in little patches--one on the left side of the garden and one on the far right, in front of the sunflowers.
I seeded them directly into the ground on 5/28 and only 4 days later they busted through the ground. I love these fast-to-germinate seeds. There's something encouraging about seeing results so quickly. Plus, these beans can be planted in batches every few weeks throughout the summer, to get a steady crop. I should probably start another batch in any empty areas.
