  1. Beans grow pretty well here in CO. I have grown the bush variety. This vid
    makes me want to plant them again. I’m going to need more garden beds! :)

  2. Rendering your effort just to make us learn are very heartbreaking and
    satisfying. I appreciate the overview of this video and I must be thankful
    for your elegant ideas indeed. Good job!

  3. Nice job buddy. Next year I’m doing some square foot gardening raised beds
    and I’ll be refering back to your vids for sure. No rain on my side of the
    state, it’s bad over here, rivers and lakes are LOW.

  4. You’re welcome. It’s a nice way to get em in tight and still make for easy

  6. So how did that small area produce for you. Im going to be doing some small
    areas and was thinking about pole beans but this may be better.

  7. What kind of beans are those? I’m growing lab lab beans and think they may
    be purple pods as well.

  8. Its a bush bean (stringless) called “Royal Burgundy” Never grown them
    before but the photo on the front suggests a purple skinned bean with a
    green inside. The skin is supposed to green when lightly cooked.

  9. thanks, the deer, raccoon, groundhogs, rabbits, bugs, and passers by are

  10. You do nice work! I like your raised beds. Your lucky to get that rain. Got
    a drought where I am. Hot and dry. My animals and plants are suffering.

  11. Thanks, the video is a bit deceptive, we’re in desperate need of rain right
    now too. I wouldn’t say it’s a drought situation here, but the plants are
    shriveling up and the only people with grass are the ones watering.

  12. Thanks, the soil at that end of the garden seems to be much looser than the
    stuff up top, less clay and gravel too.

  13. Thanks Allen, That was about it for the rain here as well. I’ll be looking
    forward to your gardening videos if you make any. I find growing veggies
    quite fun, and am getting into canning and such too. Lots to learn!

  14. somehting I hav done in the past to get things growing faster is soak the
    seed overnight in a glass of water. It plumps them up so that when you
    plant they are already about to split and start growing. bad side is if you
    delay the seeds can get too wet. :) heavy rain this year is anything more
    than 3/4 inch :)

  15. Thanks Randy, That’s about spot on with the rain. LOL! The seed packet
    recommended soaking overnight for faster germination as well. I’ve yet to
    try soaking seeds though, just go out daily and give em a bit of the good
    stuff with a watering can until they are up for a couple days.

  16. Good Vid. Anyone can just put beans into the ground and wait for them to
    grow, but you sir, help to make gardening look fun. I have beans that are
    purple when harvested and turn green when cooked. Can’t wait to get em
    planted. I just may use this method. Thanks for posting

  18. You’re welcome. I’m glad you liked it and thanks for taking the time to
    stop in.

  19. I live in MI as well. St clair shores. what part of the state do you live
    in? It is handy to see someone with the same climate that I have, so I can
    expect to see the pests and such that you get. Thanks!

  21. MY beans got attacked by Mexican bean beetles, but we still ended up with
    quite a bit, dried most of the beans. I think if the beans were spaced a
    bit further apart the bean beetles wouldn’t have been as bad.

  23. Cool video, Roosevelt. Love your garden, great job done using Mother Nature
    herself to water the seeds! Greetings from Spain!

  24. It has been a dry summer. I haven’t even bothered to hit the woods in
    search of mushrooms because there is likely very little to be found. I’ve
    noticed lots of grasshoppers lately, don’t know if that’s due to lack of
    rain or what.
