Um. Also? The heirlooms have not been attacked by slugs ONCE.
Can't say the same for the purple podded poles!
Notice the munched bits on the edges of the leaves? Damn slugs.
Full leafed and victorious. No nibbled edges. No ugly dark green spots. These were planted side by side in the same soil, light conditions, etc. The heirlooms came up faster and are climbing the trellis faster than the generic podded pole bean. The heirloom is healthier, a more vibrant shade of green and seems generally more robust in all the important ways.
I think the jury just got in people, and it's not looking good for the non organic, generic, laboratory made beans. Not good at all.
That being said, a cat has decided to shit in my other yellow wax bean patch. Because my neighbors don't believe in keeping their cats contained. Because the world is their oyster. Either that or it was my 12 year old, snottier than snot, itty bitty bitch-kitty Rose who snuck (sneaked?) into the pea patch and took a dump in my beds.
|Prove it, Ma. Just prove I did that.|
I would totally never do that. That's grody.
