Not nearly as big as I used to plant, but it is a productive spot. Will be picking green beans in the next week.
I bought most of mine from tractor supply and rural king over the years. I have not bought any in a while. Last time I bought any, I think they were still less than $3 each for 6 footers. They messed up and gave me 6 1/2 foot t posts instead, didn't realize until I got home and unloaded them. The 6 1/2 work great for tomatoes. The plants will usually outgrow a 5 for post.Where you guys get your t-stakes from?
Stink bugs are usually the only bugs we have issues with in our squash or cucumbers. We didn't get squash in this year, but I have hit the cucumbers with sevin (new formula) and it seems to be doing well. Years past, have used both sevin(carbaryl, old formula) and Malathion."Knock on wood", so far I've avoided the squash bugs this year.
i planted contenders for years but she likes these a lot better. i still plant a row or two to give away. planted slme bkue lakes this year. the deer seem to prefer them and they dont like drought either. probably wont plant them again.Not my favorite either, but the beans we plant aren't bad and are a bush type. We plant contenders, my wife and daughters love them.
