Sprouting Green Beans
Green beans were planted on Saturday, August 17 and some have sprouted.
In order to keep them alive and growing, my husband placed a soaker hose along each row for more water to the roots, and less wasted in sprinkler irrigation. We tried drip hoses, but the time and cost were higher—and the soaker hoses can be run very low to conserve water.
With about 60 days to green beans, these should produce the first round about mid-October. If we have any early freezes or frosts, we’ll cover them with tarps at night and open them to air (when above freezing) in the day.
Two additional pictures (below) show the green beans sprouting through the row of ground.
