Tomorrow morning the ten to 12-year-old young gardeners will be garden scientists and conduct an experiment.
A farmer told me if you cut the bush green beans down after an abundant harvest a second crop will grow and provide more green beans than if you just let the beans keeping producing on their own.
I love a good garden experiment so here’s what we will do:
Harvest all remaining green beans.
Cut all the bean plants back to five inches making sure to include some growth nodes. Fertilize and water.
If you want to know what happens, keep an eye on plot #25.
