I was looking at the plants this morning and apparently we've had ripe beans for at least a couple weeks. I planted probably a hundred seeds and only a couple dozen grew. They were all tiny and spindly because of the lack of sunlight (compared to the huge bushy plants we had when I was a kid), but there they were, about 20 beans, many of them really nice sized. I picked the ones that weren't too ripe for eating whole, and the rest I left on the vines for seed. This is our first full year at this place and our first year gardening here, so it was mostly an experimental "plant whatever we can" year. Next year will probably be a bit more planned-out. Some pictures : My little handful of beans; there were a few red ones on the same plants as the green ones, I let most of them stay for seed to see if I can get more red-producing plants next year: Beans on the plants: Some bamboo I transplanted from the abandoned house up the street; the taller ones are struggling but the little bushy one seems to be thriving: Sweet potato vine (we've got 3 more and they are all growing like weeds): Big trailing pumpkin vine: Mm, yum: Green pomegranates: Some flower that my daughter planted a couple months ago that just bloomed last week: Big pot of basil, oregano, and rosemary, a bunch of little planters with loquat and apple seeds germinating, another sweet potato vine, random things that germinated from the compost, and a pan of drying squash seeds: Catmint (not catnip, but it's slightly similar) along the fence: Some kind of plant from Brazil that my wife's sister gave us: Our side yard where most of the stuff is growing:
