I have two beds of potatoes to dig up this week! I will put in yellow beans and zucks! try the yellow zucks they are very tender!. The potato soil is always very loose so almost anything will grow just add a little nitrogen! like blood meal or cotton seed meal will do it! After the zucks are doe in the potato bead I will put in a third bed for the season of lettuce and peas or climbing beans probably all three for he fall crop the firs week of sept! AH NO not winter again!

Thanks for all the advice. I think I will go with spinach or maybe zucks. I would love a second pea planting but I don't think it will work real well here. Bush beans might also be a good idea for me.

This is my first year with raised beds and I filled them with a clay-heavy soil. I am following my onion/garlic/potato section with a green manure to help break up the clay and add nutrients to the soil. I figured instead of taking more out of the soil in it's early life why not give some back?
