Spinach and bush bean question

Post  shannon.d.mahaffey on 4/22/2012, 1:04 pm

[img]http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/[/img]Hey everyone, I have question about our spinach, we arent exactly sure when it is ready to be harvested, please look at attached pic and let us know what you think. Also, we planted bush beans but they seem to be so tall, do you think they look ok?

WOW, lookin' good. The largest leaves of your spinach plant are ready for harvest. I like to use a scissors, because I can control my cut the way, some folks use a knife. I would take all the large leaf and leave the smaller ones, they will grow pretty quickly. YUM! Very Happy

Last year I had very bushy bush type beans and ended up putting stakes on the outside of the bed and with string, kind of corralled the bushes so they would infringe less on their neighbors.

I have spinach that size also. I cut with scissors, too. I cooked some today, but I also like to pick the smaller leaves for salads. This is the first year I have had a square foot garden and the spinach and lettuce is growing so well. I've planted peas but they are just a few inches tall. Can't wait to see how everything grows!
