Provider green beans were a HUGE success for us last year, we still have bags in the freezer and cans in the pantry. This year we are even dedicating one bed just to save seed, if we get too many we can always use them as soup beans (very versatile bean, this one :)
We've had such warm weather that we decided to go ahead and get a few of our 'first time ever growing tomatoes from seed' tomatoes into the ground. We have never planted outside this early and have already been informed that another storm is on it's way, but the freezing weather should be over at this point and I think/hope these little guys can withstand what's coming.
The bulk of seedlings are still in little pots in our back yard.
We planted 10 and have 100 (I kid you not) left....what was I thinking...eek!
Provider green beans went into the ground also,
but a box of dirt does not make for a good photo :)
Steve and I have started a new undertaking towards sustainable living....'renting' land in exchange for veggies. Our home garden is simply not big enuf to support our family of 6 very hungry people and with several trees in the yard to help us get thru the 'hell' we call summer in the Central Valley of California we can only cultivate so much of our city lot ...is a town of 10,000 officially a city?
Follow us on our adventures in gardening in our lovely neighbor Joyce's yard. Our desire is to become strangers to the checkout gals at the grocery store.
