The race to be the tallest is on in the garden. Kentucky Wonder green beans were the first thing to reach the top of the trellis structure. https://sarasinart.net/2015/04/19/so-two-engineers-built-a-trellis/ They grow faster than the King of the Garden Limas, but the Lima plants are sturdier and have thicker vines to support heavier beans. Now I’ll start to train these to go over rather than up.
Black turtle beans are beating the kidneys on the pyramid trellis, but kidneys really don’t climb much. And Eliza’s yellow plum tomatoes were the first to get taller than me (not saying much at 5′ 2″, but whatever, lol) Now they are near the top of a 7′ trellis that will help to support them.
Now we’re supposed to get 2-3″ of rain over the next 36 hours, and many people will have problems with that, since the ground is saturated from big recent rains, and nowhere for some of this water to go. Gardens and farm crops will benefit tho. Grow on, garden blessings!
