In the back of my yard I have a cement pad that used to be a dog run. Until I can afford a shed, it is my garden and a little sitting area.
Unfortunately as you can see, only a few green bean plants have come up. It is very sparse. While talking to one of my customers who is a great gardener.... I told her that something is eating my green beans. She told me it probably was a slug. Slugs love beans. I have been putting down bug killer, but not slug killer.
Today, I purchased slug killer and more seeds to plant. I really want a good crop of beans to can. It has always been a favorite vegetable for my boys.
When they were little we always had a guessing game with our beans. They would hold up a bean and I would guess how many seeds were inside the shell and then they would eat it. To this day, they prefer beans over corn. Brady loves broccoli first then beans. I am thankful they grew up liking at least this vegetable.
Now I am off to plant green bean seeds again. This time --- They WILL grow and make it! Those darn slugs!! I hope your garden is growing nicely too.
As a side note, there is a really great post from Idaho Preppers today on the Wheat supply. It is worth reading. I hope you have a good storage of wheat - if not.... buy some today!
