Well today was the day and we all went out and picked the plants and some flowers to put in the ground, here are some pic's from this moring and early afternoon









Its not much but it will be enough to feed us and a few neighbors who like our treats, we decided on not doing the lower part thats 80 foot long and 15 foot wide.....just too much work and our vacaction is in a weird spot this year so we wont be there to tend a larger crop. We put in potatoes(just a couple for fun), green peppers(my fav), tomatoes, brocoli, yellow squash,yellow and green beans, and pumpkins. Thanks for looking

Great job yall! I planted a few yellow snap beans this year, but they were no-shows. Do they have a similar taste to the green ones?

To me the yellows tend to have a sweeter taste.....a no butter added kind flavor :D

We really like the yellow wax beans, tender and mild. Sweetie doesn't like strong green beans, we plant the tendergreen variety and pick at pencil size, which is every day on hot days. We only have a 15' row of each this year, will only can a few pints when there are to many to keep up with. We mix them too, great for dilled or bean salad with oil free italian dressing....James
