snap beans

  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Several years ago I had a bonfire in the field behind my house. We talked about this in the transplanting pepper plants thread. I found out if there is too much potash (potassium) in the soil, the potash will prevent the uptake of nitrogen to the plant. To counter this, use a high nitrogen...

    Snap beans are breaking through the soil. Peppers are getting established. Potatoes are not showing yet. Not included in the video, the tomato plants in pots are doing very well. We have had so much rain, I am worried about the pepper plants drowning. Some of them are doing well, some not...

    The season of plenty is upon us. On Saturday June 14, 2014 the grandkids, my wife and I dug 4 1/2 bushels of potatoes, beans are doing good, fig trees have figs on them. Here in southeast Texas we had an unusually cold and wet winter. We got snow 4 times this year. One of the storms blanketed...

    My first attempt at drying green beans. My wife and I planted 2 rows of beans, 1 row Roma II snap beans and 1 row contender snap beans. On Sunday June 1st I picked exactly 5 pounds of beans. I know it was 5 pounds because I used a scale. My wife has been putting a bunch of the beans in the...

If we see them we squash them.:xeye: For this reason you will often see imperfect plants. I am also not meticulous with weeds. If we have a week with extra time on my...

    I got my garden out really late this year, but I wanted to sum it up in case anyone wanted to see it. I guess my total garden space this year is 60 x 120, plus a few raised beds. This isn't everything, but it's some of my favorite veggies. Next year I'll be a little earlier, but I might post...

    This spring I want to plant some high production vegetables. Some of the plants I have in mind are cucumbers, snap beans, squash, zucchini, okra and grape tomatoes. My garden here at the house is not going to be very big, so I need stuff that produces more then once, as compared to corn...
