I've never been able to get even the easiest of shrubs to grow in it. I've amended the soil year after year with no success. One year I had about 4 ft. of the poison dirt removed and replaced with good soil, *##%#\; nothing, nada, I gave up!
Along comes the handyman husband, looking for a new challenge! You can see it coming, I just know it!
He planted three favorite things, tomatoes, zucchini and pole beans, and everything is thriving. I have been bad mouthing that patch of dirt all over the neighborhood for all these years, but, as the kids say today...go figure! We've had a few zucchini, but will need to wait a while for the tomatoes and beans.
Here 's a pix I took this morning.
how prolific they are, I'm running out of ways to fix it.
My favorite way is just steamed with a
little butter, salt and pepper.
The beans are being picked for our dinner every
other day, I don't think I'll ever get tired of them.
taking some to my neighbor Mary Anne tomorrow.
