|Romanesco zucchini and Royal Burgundy beans|
I prefer to grow pole beans but don't have space in the garden for them until some time in May. Space opens up for bush beans much earlier, as early as late March if I I want to take a chance on an early planting. This year I waited until mid April and got lucky because they had a chance to get established before the May Gray extra foggy extra cool weather set in. So now, just as my pole beans are just starting to climb their trellises I'm harvesting the first snap beans.

Dave was asking me this weekend how my harvests this year stack up to the harvests at this time last year and I had no idea, but I can see now that I'm about 56 pounds ahead of last year. I'm not sure what the differences are, I'll have to take a look at that later.
