Bean Harvest.

Today we plucked the first harvest from bean plants sown back on July 19th.  We sowed the bush habit plants in two rows down a bed roughly 15' long--one row of "Provider," the green bean in the photo, and another of "Golden Rocky Wax," the yellow bean shown here.  We've already been eating fresh beans from plants sown on May 5th, but production from that first sowing has begun to taper off.  Now this second sowing should pick up that slack and bear fruit into the fall, which means this ended up being a well-timed succession!
