usually it is my tried and true crop that always performs no matter what the circumstances. like last year when we had a rainy cool summer with like no sun, the green beans went nuts. this year? they didnt do well at ALL. so weird!!! it was hot and sunny and not rainy at all. maybe they like rainy and cool? IDK!!!
Not sure about the rainy part, but beans do very well here in the mild Northwest. Our summers are usually in the mid to low 80's and no rain. I do water about an inch a week.
I'm not too far from NH so it was probably VERY similar climate.kgall wrote:My weather is similar to yours and my first attempt at beans was a miserable failure. I threw some seeds in after I pulled my potatoes and they are doing wonderfully! It hasn't been quite as hot, and they were the seeds were from the same package so I think it is the heat that did them in!
it was one of those things where there was never enough to pick for supper ya know? and then by the time I had enough well yeah. there was a lot of wasted beans.
