I made an interesting discovery today, while picking beans:
The ones on top are from the Lucky Garden; the ones on the bottom come from plants that randomly sprouted along the perimeter of the chicken run.
What I *think* happened was that a bunch of birds raided the Lucky Garden, ate a bunch of seeds, and then eliminated them while perched on the fence that surrounds our coop. It looks as though these larger beans have benefited from a steady supply of chicken poop fertilizer.
Either I should start planting EVERYTHING there, or else I’ve learned (again) that effort is highly overrated when it comes to gardening whereas happy accidents are the gardener’s best friend.
Nevertheless, ALL beans will be eaten, probably raw and as soon as possible.
