Green beans second crop.

I only planted 1 row of blue lake bush beans in the spring.

First week of August I planted 3 rows of beans where the corn was. I watered them and they were up in 3 days in 95 to 100 deg weather.

Couple days ago wife picked a large basket of beans from 1 row. Need to pick more beens. Looks like we will have beans until frost thats about Halloween.

Awesome Gary looking good there. I'm sitting here kicking myself in the butt for not succession planting beans mine don't have much longer on them.

I didn't plant a succession crop of beans, but the ones that were planted in April have gotten their second wind, now. Just picked a gallon about 2 hours ago....

Gix, you still have time to do a second crop of radishes, they grow well through frosts. Oh, and lettuce will produce well into the cold as well.
