I am so excited! I was doing my usual check of the garden this morning and when I brushed through the beans I noticed there was a really long one beneath the leaves. Imagine my surprise when I looked harder and saw a whole bunch of beans!
These are Henderson’s Black Valentine Pole Beans from Baker Creek. Well, that’s what the package says anyway. They are clearly not pole beans. I’ve watched the purple podded pole beans snake up the trellis next to them while the black valentine’s stopped at about 2 and a half feet and refused to take to the trellis at all.
But hey, they have beans so I’m not complaining. 🙂
