The last pole bean picking?
Tuesday, 08 May 12 Cloudy 27°C / 80°F
The third picking- in the evening this time. About 3 1/2 days from last picking. I had hoped that the crop would be finished by now, but it seems it has a week or two left. I will have to let them go to dry beans since I will be leaving for Hawaii in a couple days.
This has been the most satisfying crop so far this year; reasonably trouble-free and productive enough for a couple meals from a picking every three days. I like the purples for flavor better, they are sleek and soft, no strings. The rattlesnake beans are much more prolific. The mountaineer whites that volunteered from last year’s accidental reseeding did not do nearly as well- pods not full, less fruit. So it was useful to grow multiple varieties in the same planting, and I will look for rattlesnake beans to plant next season.
