Wow, freedhardwoods, you are ambitious! I like that farm planter, how does it work? Is there a equipment blog? I'd love to see what everyone favors most for gardening tools. Two of my green beans sprouted today! There's hope!
I froze at least 10 one gallon baggies of green beans last summer from about 12 plants. That's in addition to eating them in the summer too. I figure I'll plant more if these get going first, like to do them in stages, makes the harvesting and blanching, etc. easier on me.
Hang in there, busybee, it'll happen.
