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?
- asparagus beans (from Aunt Debbi)
- red noodle asparagus beans (same as above)
- speckled butter beans
- black eyed peas
- 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!
