Mom has decided that next year she is only planting pole green beans. The first reason is that I won't be able to reach them (watch me) and the second is they produce a LOT more, BIGGER beans than the bush plants. I was going to show you a photo of the 19 or 21 green beans that mom picked yesterday, except she forgot to take a photo of them. She did, however, manage a photo of one of the big, thick beans.
I know you have no reference for them, but take my word on it, they are about 4-5 inches long. Mom also decided that when she pulls the ends off, she should give them to me. I love raw green beans. And yes, my adoring fans, I did get cooked green beans. They were yummy and tender, even the big thick ones were very tender. Here's hoping for more tonight!
