Nick the Farmer's Beans

This guy knows how to grow some beans! Always generous, whether it's advice about chicken poop, giving us seedlings, or giving us full-fledged ready to eat vegetables, Nick the Farmer is a good farm friend. We asked if he knows how to blog and he just shrugged and walked away.

just ran across your blog today - wonderful! i recently moved into an apt with a big backyard and wanted to do some planting. what are you planning to plant this month?

Well that's a great question. The days are getting shorter everyday and it is insanely hot right now which makes it hard for seeds to germinate. We are planning on trying another round of lettuce. But root vegetables like carrots and beets are great to plant right now because as the temperature starts falling in the next month they'll be fine in the ground.
