The Contenders and Calima snap beans I planted on the 10th are up and out the ground. They are right on schedule according to the Germination Temperature chart I posted earlier. At 68 degrees of ground temps the beans are suppose to germinate in 11 days, and they did. With rain coming later this week I'm thinking of planting 2 more rows of Contenders today or tomorrow if time permits.

Onions and sweet peas looking great after the fertilizer and rain of a couple of days ago.

My fig trees are putting on new leaves.

All is well,

Gene,

My beans were planted last Sunday afternoon and no sign of them yet. What I am getting concerned about is my potatoes are now in 3 weeks and nothing is up...  We will see.

I had the same problem a few times with potatoes - found out too late that they had actually rotted in the ground - it was just too damp.
