June Update: Fabaceae

I have one bed for peas and beans, bed 11.
First I have one winterbor kale going to seed. Behind that are Romano Bush beans. In front of the Romanos are Dragon Tongue Bush beans
Then I planted almost a whole packet of dried black beans.
Along the back of the bed I planted Kentucky Wonder Pole Green beans. I have chicken wire and sticks but I need to figure out a better way to help them grow up.
At the far end of the bed are my peas. We had our first harvest of the coral shell peas this week.
My sugar snap peas are just blooming and setting pods. They are about 4 feet tall and beyond the supports I made. We should get to enjoy some of these soon.

I'm growing Kentucky Wonder too. It is my favorite green been. I try others but always come back.
