how to protect bush bean seedlings
First time growing beans. I have been planting the 3 varieties of bush beans all week and last week.
Plants are between 7 inches tall and some just planted seed.
Something is getting into my yard. Prob birds and cats etc.
Wish I could nicely fence whole shebang
This is my front yard. I live in the" city burb" Have small back yard already filled with berries etc. So had to front yard it. Sure can not eat grass
Is it okay to put "cups" around them.Upside down of course with bottom cut out.??? Found lots of "waxy" old full bags beverage cups from a now defunct fast food resturant. Found them at junk pickup I assume the gardener died or moved. I can always cut away cup later right ??
I read about using matchstick. I now have them "marked" each opening with a toothpick.
what I did was use landscape fabric over grass and completely covered with chipped tree mulch(free from prob Januarys ice storm) I had no way to transport a tiller so I did what I had to.
My broccoli did fine and so are pepper plants etc.
Or do the Bean plants need more room than a cup bottom ??
What I did was push back "mulch" cut fabric and plant one bean in each 3 to 6 inch "X" out hole.
Please comments and suggestions. Cause I have lots planted. I m so anxious to try MY own homegrown beans
