Green Bean Experiment

The experiment?
To build beds, plant seeds (in August) and see what would happen.
The beds are for vegetables in the Spring. We didn’t have any intention of planting this year, but decided on a small experiment in one of the beds of carrots, lettuce, green beans and peas.
The peas did not produce much, and we replanted the seeds we did get into the area around the riverbed today.

The lettuce has been delicious. Not a huge producer either, because of the end of the Summer start. But, the kind – Heirloom Oak Leaf – is going to be a main planting in the Spring.

The green beans, with only a few plants, have done well.

So, our little experiment went well.
We are still waiting to see how the carrots do!
