Or you know- be terribly neglectful and then reward them after the fact in the hope that you can scam more beans from them.
Mr French bush bean here got a little tempest tossed by the Santa Ana winds last week. But he’s producing a ton of little beans and I can respect that.
I tossed some compost into his pot to try and prolong the season, and I harvested what I could.
Dang! It’s two plants in a pot that barely got over a foot in height! That’s a respectable amount of beans! I think after my years of struggling and enjoying pole beans I might be a bush bean convert. Now to see if I can get more beans into November.
You know, for science!
And for my tummy.
