I noticed my Yard Longs were fading the past week with foliage loss and beans not uniform like before, so they had to go to make room for my second crop. It took me an hour to remove the vines from my 24' long by 7 ft. tall trellis they were so intertwined in the hog wire. I'll let them dry out a bit on the ground then hit them with the mulching mower for the compost pile. I should have lots of volunteer yard long plants in a few weeks.
I'll be putting in half a trellis of Yard Longs and half with Yellow Wax beans my wife wants to try. I'm also planning on putting in a 45' double planted row of soybeans for Edamame. I did half a row earlier this year and harvested a 5 gallon bucket from them, so I'm hoping for 10 gallons worth out of the whole row.
Also pulled up everything but the okra, peppers and eggplant. It's been raining almost daily and my ground is so wet I can't even turn it over with a shovel without it clumping up. Hopefully, I'll have 4-5 days of hot sun to dry things out a bit so I can pull my rows.
Cooler weather is at least another 6 weeks away but there's things I want to get in soon if the weather would just cooperate. Shame is I can't share our wet weather with the rest of the country going through such a drought.
