What should I do differently next year?
This is my first year growing beans. I love my bean patch, but it seems as if it's a bit of a struggle overall. Initially only about 1/3 of the seeds I planted actually grew, so I re-worked the soil and re-planted in the empty areas about a month and a half later than the first round.
It just seems that the ones that are growing are... thin. When comparing to some of the pictures on this forum, it seems like there should be a lot more leaves.
I still need to add string where the new growth is, but here's a general idea of how things stand now. Sorry in advance for the multiple posts but I cannot seem to figure out how to put two pictures within one post.
In any case, I feel like I must be doing something wrong. I planted seeds, thinned them out (still need to thin the new bush beans), watched them grow. Sort of. :) I'd appreciate any advice, and I'm happy to answer any questions.
