We have blooms on the beans that the kids planted earlier in the spring. Hopefully this means they’ll grow and we can enjoy them before the attack of the squirrels or other urban animals.
Over the years we’ve attempted to plant various edibles, aside from herbs, but have never had great luck. The tomato plants seem to thrive, but we don’t actually see the fruit on the plants until around October (go figure?) This year the beans got planted in sizable contains with rich soil and a chaser of seaweed mulch. They seem to be doing pretty well, but it’s still early.
