I have most of the planned 30 replies for R23. Just Lori and Jake, who have recently posted that their output is coming and maybe a few more. I never fret about getting them all.

I plant 10 vining green beans in the garden every spring beside the trellis. This year only 9 sprouted, and only 8 made it to start vining their way up the sisal I hang for them to latch onto.

But I alway get lots of pleasure from the ones that do get going. I just harvested the first picking off of them this past weekend, and it was like a 4l sized zip lock bag filled with beans.

There will be a similar sized picking every week for the next two weeks until frost kills them in mid to later November.
