When Morris planned his garden this Spring, he wanted all green bean plants. I thought he might like some more variety, so we added a tomato plant, chives, a squash, some pepper plants, and peas (He didn’t really care about variety, but I thought he might like watching some other plants grow.) However, six or seven of his twelve squares are dedicated to green beans, and boy, are they sprouting!
In the beginning of July, the delicate, soft purple blooms started forming. A week later, teeny-tiny green beans grew from the flowers. And by the middle of July, Morris had three to four green beans ready to pick off of each plant. He picked over 50 beans in one day!
And, he proudly washed them on his own and shared them with his family for supper.
