In just one day

Though it was cool today with all the rain and the sun, in just one day the beans all popped! I went out to look this morning and nothing. 12 hours later? It's always a fun part of gardening, the surprise, and wonder at new life.

Until next time, Keep Digging & Eat Well!

  1. Some of my beans have been attacked by small white maggots which eat the underground stems and roots, causing the plant to die. I am not sure, but I think they might be immature Vine Weevil grubs. I applied some nematodes about 6 weeks ago, which has reduced the damage (not as many losses as last year), but has not been 100% successful. I have a "Reserve" batch of beans growing in some pots, so that I can replace the casualties. What type of beans are yours?

  2. Hi Mark so far so good here, I've got Henderson Lima, and Green beans from Burpee's - "garden bean." Kind of silly generic name.
