Being new to gardening I always have lots of questions. My first question today deals with crop rotation - it makes sense, but if I have a volunteer plant, should I move it or just let it be?
Container gardening - do you really have to wash out the containers every year? Do you re-use the soil or start from scratch every year? Does it really matter or can I treat just do crop rotation with the containers too?
Volunteer Runner Beans
I wasn't planning on growing Scarlett Runner beans this year, we are branching out and trying some other true bean varieties. So far we are doing asparagus beans, yellow wax, Roma, fava, and edamame. We did edamame last year, but had a horrible crop, so we are trying it again since it is Ryle's favorite food (well, today at least). But as I was around the location I am growing some cucumbers, I noticed some volunteer runner beans. What's a girl to do? I planted some seeds I had saved and turned the 5 foot trellis I had been planning on training the cucumbers up on it's side and shared it with the beans. I hope they share nicely!
