Bean planting day

Today was bean planting day here at BrightHaven.  Of course, I’m planning to get some more seeds in the ground tomorrow as well, but I definitely got a good start today.  Now, when I make this list of seeds that I’ve planted, don’t  think that I’ve planted large areas of garden.  I figure if I plant a wide variety and lots of it, I have a better chance of getting enough beans for us!

So, what did I plant?

  1. asparagus beans (from Aunt Debbi)
  2. red noodle asparagus beans (same as above)
  3. speckled butter beans
  4. black eyed peas
  5. yellow wax beans

Tomorrow, I hope to plant some more of the speckled butter beans and some of the glimp beans I received from Mr. Hollis Baker.  I also have some McCaslin pole beans and fordhook limas that I should try as well.  Next, I need some lovely flowers to put in amongst the food.  I have snapdragons and marigolds.  I even have a lemon-scented marigold I’ve been anxious to try.  Maybe I’ll put a bit of that in there as well.

Hope to get an update and some photos for you by tomorrow.  Until then, happy gardening!
