My flowerbed out front of the rental is getting crowded. But the pansies seem much happier with veggies for company. I soaked the beans over night because I want fresh blanched green ones come late July to go in a salad with feta and oranges. I dug up the tulips (blooms long ago faded and petals dropped) mostly to make room for the beans, but also because I didn't know what else to do with them (my garden go-to guy is in Seoul). I poked the holes and Lucy dropped the beans in. After about ten she sighed, "this is wearing me out." It was pretty sweaty out.
I hope we can harvest our bounty, but if the pickings go to the next tenant, I'll be happy to start over in my own soil. And if we are still here, and the plants don't produce, we'll always have the clover to pick.
