Sorry, I didn't notice the other thread either.
, I didn't grow a lot of pole beans, and my bush beans were a bust this year (parts of the garden flooded due to heavy rains a couple of times during the year), but even with the beans I got, I had plenty to eat (with bacon gravy yum), pickled a couple pints, and gave a bunch away to friends. And near the end of the season, the bugs were getting as many as I was. Had my first visit by Japanese beetles last year (squash squish) so I can expect more this coming year.
Even with bottom heat, peppers grow really slow for me. And my clay soil doesn't warm up as fast as I'd like. So any advantage I can get I'll take.
The beans are at 90% germination today, so I am hoping they do well.
60 degrees today, took down all the outside Christmas lights, now working on indoor decorations. It'll all be down by the Epiphany.
