I love green beans but this year they are off to a slow start. I thought I'd take a few photos however because they are pretty. I have 5 rows of Jade bush beans. This year I actually had my health in June so I thinned them to the 3 inches apart. Much better. The stems are so much stronger. They are super tender and meaty. I don't like the beans that end up being almost hallow. You have to get to the bulk seed shop early to get these because they go fast.
I also found out when planting these that you have to be careful when putting the soil on top of the seeds. Make sure the soil isn't wet and clumpy. Freshly tilled soil works best. Just toss it on top of the seeds and make sure they are covered an inch to inch and a half. Don't step on the soil or even press down on it. The lighter it is the better. Successful sprouting will happen if you leave the soil loose and friable.
You can see they are all kinds of tall and short. I had to replant the far left row. Oh and I don't know if you can see the drip line on the far right. I ripped out the spinach and planted two more rows of beans there. They are already up since taking the photo and blogging about it. You can click on the photo to see it larger.
