Last time I tried to grow beans my harvest was about that big too.
Why did the beans not survive when other veggies did? Poor lone green bean plant:)
I had a similar problem last summer - but ours was too much rain!
Like you, we had lettuce at the beginning of the summer. Then the tomatoes were the only thing to survive through the summer. They were weird though, because we keep getting occasional tomatoes but never a bumper crop. Oh well. Next summer. Here's Mine
Rabbits! They kept eating everything green, especially the beans. We wised up with the lettuce and placed a wire cage over those but were too late with saving the beans. Oh well, next year.
I had lettuces (some of them grew again after I cut them) and my herbs were fine, but the beans were drowned! My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/DncFP
Savor those two beans! Shame you didn't get more.
Those thievin' wabbits!!!Wishing you a better harvest next year!
It;s ok beans are probably the only vegetable I don't like!!
Last time I had a garden, we had a lot of tomatoes and zucchini.Love fresh green beans! Enjoy the small bounty.Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST
Ah well, at least all was not lost :)Have a great weekendcarol
Isn't it funny how gardens grow sometimes? At least you had some other veggies -- better luck with the beans next year!My Snapshot
It looks beautiful... love the green. Looks like not a bad harvest after all. Wish I could taste your fresh salads!
They still look good! And your garden looks in far better condition than mine (once it was just tomatoes left I really let the weeds go). Definitely sounds like you had some good salad material though!
I had to laugh - my own thumb is blacker than black - and then you add rabbits, squirrels, birds plus possum, rats and who knows what else. Who can grow anything?
Aren't we grateful for farmers who really know how to do this.
Hey, at least you have proof! We ate ours and pulled them up already....just a couple of handfuls this year♫♪
Too bad they're not magic beans ... three would do the trick right?Alas ... but there's always next year!
Lol. At my fingertips, that would be a bumper crop. Too fun!! Enjoy your lettuces!!
Yes, rabbits! I grew beans successfully for 20 years... and then the bunnies started eating them. Why now? I have no idea. So this year I put up a fence, and a hail storm in July wiped out every last plant. I replanted but they grew poorly in the 100 degree heat and I got maybe 6 beans! Some years you just can't win.
beans, one of the MOST nutritious things in any garden... my dad built a chicken wire 'slope' for them to grow up along, the green and the yellow... worked for peas and cukes, too
