Interesting. Didn’t realize these were bush beans. But that’s okay. I’ll be able to try both bush and pole this year (with luck) and see which one I like better.

    I pulled up these plants. If I plan bush beans in the future, I’ll need to have a good many more. I’ve decided that I prefer pole beans.
