Hopefully, Green Beans

This is only my second year trying to grow green beans.
Last year, I planted them in the new compost rich raised vegetable bed where they burned up and died.
This year, I planted them in the older raised vegetable bed.
The beans got off to a good start, but our insane wind this spring and a frost did some damage.


Some plants look nice.


Some plants are struggling.


A few completely died.  But, I have way more than last year.

  1. I hope your beans do well. John used to grow green beans for us and they are so good fresh from the garden.

  2. I have been sitting on bean seeds for two years now. I am intimidated by them for some reason. Great to see the success you've had. Now I have to get off my butt and try them out.

  4. I hope they grow for you. I grew them (and canned some) one of my first years gardening. Jeremy made fun of me because it took more work than they were worth. .so I didn't do them again. But we sure enjoy them fresh from the garden. .and my favorite is dilled green beans, crunchy from the jar (they are super easy to water bath can. .so if you get more than you can eat. .I will email you the recipe!)

  5. Good luck with them. I'd love to have the room for a small garden.

  6. I've planted a lot more beans than I meant to and they're all the bush type. I want pole beans for a 3 sisters garden, but I keep buying the wrong kind. I hope yours go crazy for you this year!

  7. Green beans are coming! Mine are about that size too, but the slugs are putting holes in the leaves. In fact the slugs wiped out my cucumbers in one night! Not even a stump was left.

  8. You have a lot of healthy ones for sure! I'm learning a lot about veggie gardening this year. I think some of the new compost we added to fix the wrong soil that was delivered is causing some of our seedlings to burn too. Who knew it was so complicated? :) I hope you get lots of beans!

  10. Hang in there; they might surprise you. I've grown green beans for years, and some years are better than others. I've often done a late second planting when the first ones didn't turn out so well. There's nothing like fresh green beans in the summer!

  11. I hope they grow for you this year. Some years are just better than others. This year is not such a success with all the strange weather here.

  12. Don't give up-do even another sowing. Green beans will soon be on your dinner plate.
