Planted Green Beans

Written by Chris on June 22nd, 2010

Decided that the two pepper plants I put down in the “real garden” were going nowhere, and the Earthbox peppers were going to satisfy our pepper needs, as well as far outpace the ones planted in the ground, so tore those up and replaced them with more green bean seeds today (6/4/10). I only planted four green bean plants back in the beginning of Spring, which is not enough to generate many beans I have discovered. I also spaced them too far apart (2′) so added more in between the ones already there. Kinda late to plant, but beans get going pretty quickly, so hopefully we’ll have more beans soon.

    Interesting (though sad) that the ground peppers aren’t working out. Are they just not growing or are they diseased? I’m concerned because I have one potted bell that’s doing nicely, but the “ground” habanero is SLOW going…not exactly scientific since they’re very different peppers, but still concerning.

    I think I probably did not water them enough. They did have some holes in the leaves, but otherwise looked normal (not yellowing or anything). The ones in my Earthbox were looking so good that I just gave up on the in-ground ones.

    It sounds like earth boxes are the way to go for ease of growing. What do you all think about this? I love the idea of the plants in the ground, but my tomatoes have been struggling and so I am thinking of switching them to earth boxes.
