This is the first row of beans. They are pole beans and we string fencing wire between the end posts for them to climb. Their name is "Turkey Craw" and sometimes you can't find the seed in our area so I always try and save my seeds for the coming year.
This shot shows between the rows. They are a breeze to pick; no stooping over ...just walk down the rows and pick as you go! It makes it easy for an old lady to pick beans!
This year I'm trying my hand at growing watermelon. I love to see these melons lying among the vines. Yum!
And since I am growing watermelon I had to try cantelope. I also have two pumpkin vines but they are sort of unruly and running everywhere! I may have to rein them in before it is over with. Last I looked, the vines were headed for the fence and thinking they might like to run free in the yard!
Well that is just a bit of what is going on in my world. The little plants with the small leaves are Morning Glory plants. They will overtake the whole acre if you are not careful. I spend most of my time battling these little devils but I never give up. You will not win this battle!
