Alice’s Garden Spot: Planting Green Beans, Corn

Congratulations to all the fortunate mothers who received flowering plants and hanging baskets from their darling children for Mother’s Day. How sweet life is - along with a week of warm temperatures and sunshine, with a little rain sprinkled in, for good measure. As you prepare your garden spot, remember that a small area well cared for will yield more that a large plot that is neglected. Locate an area that has six hours, at least, of sun for above ground producing plants, saving the shady spots to plant your root crops — Alice Rankin/Alice Rankin’s Garden Spot.

DFO: You can find the complete text of Alice’s Garden Spot in the extended entry below. Also, you should feel free to ask Alice questions in the comments feature. She’ll check those out throughout the day and respond to them.
