Gardening Guru: Two crops-One planting!

By Melanie Mathieson Gardening Guru •Two Crops – One Planting Sometimes you can get a second crop from some plants like green and yellow beans, lettuce, Swiss chard and other greens. After they have finished producing, try chopping them down about 3 inches above the soil. You can either cut with scissors or pruners or if you have a large patch use the lawn mower set on the highest setting or garden shears. Keep watering as usual and in about a week you should see the stumps sending out new shoots. In about a month to six weeks, depending on the weather, you should be picking a new crop.
