I'm still trying to figure out the name given to these heirloom seeds. They are a string-less green bean. The plants raced to the top of the pole, and then sent out tentacles. I've curved the tentacles downward and around but they are determined to aim for the sky.
I had my first picking of beans for dinner last night. Very tender. I noticed the effects of the Mexican bean beetle on the leaves. My goal this year is to allow nature to self-correct. That means I'm doing my best to keep the Neem packed away. I purposely companion planted to bring harmony to the garden.
