Beans in the Garden get a dose of Rabbit Poo!

Gardening is in full bloom in my vegtable garden. So many things to do in the past couple of weeks and so much more in the weeks to come. Here in Cali we have had weather that has been acting like a 2 year old, very unpredictable! I have been dreaming of all the veggies that will soon be on my plate!

Beans of many kinds are one of them!
I have planted many types!

Cow Peas (Black Eyed Peas)
Kentucky Wonder ( Green Beans)
Lim Beans (Butter Beans)
Pole Beans (yellow, purple & green)
Asparugas Beans (Long Beans)
Dragon Tounge (New to me, I have never grown)

That should get us through the summer and some winter months!

Here is how I start my beans. I did start almost all of them indoors under grow lights!
I give my plants a good dose of  Rabbit Poo!

I keep all my Rabbit Poo in a container and as I need it, I shovel a bowl full! I use the same bowl and spoon for my Rabbit Poo!

I dig my trenches for the Bean starts and the add some Poo all along the trench!

I then lay some Organic Compost in the trench and add the Bean starts! All my beans are in a row!

I sectioned my beans along my homemade twig fence. In hopes the beans will be using the fence as thier trellis. I also marked all my Beans with Tounge Depressors so I would know what Beans, were going where.

In a couple weeks I will direct sow more beans to have a continous crop!

Happy Gardening!!!


  1. Rabbit poo. Just when I thought that chicken poo was the thing to find, I've got to add another kind of poo to my (sh*t) list. Glad to see someone else is a tongue depressor chick. I was begining to think I was the only one. Depressors and Sharpies...who could ask for anything more?

  2. I love the tongue depressors! Cheap and easy...I call them popsicle sticks though. I could probably do the same thing with guinea pig poo, but I don't know if I want to spend the time sifting it out of the pine bedding. I love all the beans. I always have to grow at least 4 or five times. I don't start mine inside though, I just direct sow them outside.
