Since we are a family of 10, I should have planted an entire raised bed with only beans. That would have given us enough beans for a meal every few days, instead of only a handful each week.
Some friends are sharing their abundant harvest with us and have told us that they started their garden earlier than we did, and used a special frost cloth to protect the plants from freezing.
