Here's a quick updates on my beans and peas in the small garden - I planted several patches of different beans and they seem to be better in the small garden vs large, and not as eaten out by bugs. There is a mixture of green and yellow beans, few shelling peas, some runner beans; soybeans for snacking and a handful of snap peas. The ones in container seem to be doing the best, even though it was not really intended for eating - they're improving nitrogen levels for 3 bulbs that are hiding underneath - my super large begonias.
More bush beans mixed with volunteer potatoes, runner beans in the second picture next to red cabbages and a handful of snap peas that survived and now blooming. Garlic scapes showed up in the early variety of garlic - not impressed with the growth so far. Neither Inchelium Red or Kettle River are very impressive growers this year, but maybe it's just a bad year for them. However my German Porcelain is huge comparing to them so either way I should have enough for winter.
And some more pretties in the small garden - huge iris plants and pink peonies.
