Bed 0: North end plated with "Contender" String Beans

Bed 0: North end planted with "Contender" String Beans

This bed, Bed 0, used to have strawberries growing in it for ~ 3 years. The Northern (closer) half had sundry crops, such as “Pioneer” sweet peas, cilantro, tomatoes, spinach, lettuces, and Hungarian poppies, as well.  As of 31 March 2009, the Northern half of Bed 0 was amended w/5 x 5 gal. buckets ~ 3 cu. ft. of our home-made compost, as well as with 1 lb. agricultural lime; 0.85 lbs gypsum; 0.25 oz (all I had left, instead of 2.25 oz) Mn2SO4; 0.45 oz Fertibor (14.9% Boron).   “Contender” string beans, which were sown in a flat on 1-inch centers in the greenhouse on 3/8/2009, were transplanted onto 6-inch centers, on 3/31/09 and 4/1/09, as pictured above.  The Southern half of this bed, Bed 0, will be planted with tomatoes.
