In the beginning III

June 27, 2010

(This is a continuation of the series recounting how all this mess got started, which I left off last week here.)

Even though I fully expected the seeds of my first garden to sprout, it was still a surprise and a bit of a rush when I went out one morning and it was actually happening.

The first out of the ground were a couple of bush type beans – “Roma”, a flat “string” bean and “Henderson” baby Lima beans.

In another day or two the “Devotion” hybrid sweet corn popped right up.

The spacing for the beans was 9 per square foot and the corn was 4 per square foot. This obviously is much tighter spacing than traditional row gardening calls for; I was a little skeptical at this point but followed Mr Batholomew’s plan exactly as stated in the book.
