Well, if society falls and the grocery stores close and the zombies attack at least we’ll have beans.
There are a lot of bug nibbles on the leaves and some on the beans, but I think I’ll still have plenty in the end.
The newpaper and straw method has worked well. Weeds do poke up here and there, but the earth stays moist enough under that stuff (or at least it has in this blessedly wet summer) that I can yank them up easily.
Now I have to hope they dry quickly enough that I can enter them in the fair!
