Looks good!

I'm waiting for beans, too. My beans look like they're getting ready to flower, so hopefully there'll be beans soon. What type of beans did you grow, bush or pole?

Good looking beans, very healthy and uniform. That first full picking is always the best. Down this way I get two, maybe three, pickings and then the plants begin to play out. I have tried a second crop a time or two, but with mixed success. Your pictures make me want to give it another try.

I can't wait for our beans to be ready. They have not begun to flower yet but hopefully soon.

Not too late to grow beans! Bush beans I sowed a few days are popping up already. :D

... but DH says not to grow them any more because HE doesn't like them and won't eat them. :roll: ... grumble, grumble ... but they're SO FUN to grow because they're SO EASY!! Whatever -- I've ALREADY got a whole bunch of bush beans producing, and the pole beans are just starting to flower. :lol:

I do think I'll plant more PEAS in the spring next year as well as dedicate more space to CORN and ONIONS. :wink:
