We have had our coldest April and May in 50 years, with record low sunshine and higher than average rain fall. I’ve been feeling my share of garden angst, which is quickly put into perspective when considering farmers are also dealing with seed & plant rot and massive crop failures.
This is how the Scarlet Runner bean should look:
What I got: dark brown, mushy, slimy seeds that failed to thrive. This is the best of what was left.
So round two. I soaked the remaining beans for a couple of days and replanted just last week.
And alas, we have one survivor. Though I’m not sure how much light this little guy is going to get being dwarfed by the peas…
