Sweet Corn and First Bush Beans

An example of my "small" ears of sweet corn from the raised beds.
I hope they keep coming like this.  I'm going to keep count to see what kind
of yield I get from a bag of 100 seeds.

I also picked the first handful of Jade green beans for supper tonight.  There were three or four at their prime, and the choice was either eat them raw in the garden, or pick a few more that weren't quite ready to go with them.   They are longer than the Blue Lake beans that I always grow.  About 7 or 8 inches long.   And because they were so new they were EXCELLENT tender beans.
The Jade plants are so big and sturdy that their stems are thicker than pencils.  I'm pretty pleased with them
