Fenton Friday: Bean Gardening

We pulled out the last of the peas and planted two kinds of bush beans this week - 'Red Swan' from Hudson Valley Seed Company and 'Dragon's Tongue' from John Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds. I have never grown either variety before so am curious to see how they do for me (barring rabbit interference) and how they taste compared to my usual 'Blue Lake' beans.

I also put in some 'Rainbow' Swiss Chard seedlings and a 'Savor' melon seedling that looks a bit weak, but I hope it recovers for me.

The cauliflower is developing nicely and I tucked into under a cover cloth in case the sun gets too intense this coming weekend.

What is growing in your edible garden this week?

About Fenton Friday: Every Friday during the growing season, I'll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the FentonStreet Community Garden just across the street from my house in zone 7 Mid-Atlantic MD/DC border. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 8th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
