At last! Kentucky Wonder Green Beans Begin to Produce
Yes, they are getting it done. Exactly 60 days after sowing the seeds, the first Kentucky Wonder green beans are showing up on my trellis.
They may be small yet, but they are present. I will post pictures when they grow big enough to eat.
Yesterday was Memorial Day, and I had company for lunch.
Here was my menu:
Baked chicken, with mushroom and sour cream gravy
Green Beans (my home-grown ones, the Roma II bush type bean)
Boiled Yukon Gold potatoes
Blackberry crisp, warm with a scoop of ice cream. Instead of using sugar, I used agave nectar. Instead of straight brown sugar, I used the 50% brown sugar/50% Splenda mix sold in my grocery store. No one knew the difference. It was delicious.
The company was pleasant, and my green beans got rave reviews.
I love gardening. More pictures of the beans later.
