Have to say, our green beans did awesome this year. We used the same variety we like last year and they did not disappoint us. We picked over all the beans twice, and it looked as if they had not been picked at all. These two quick pickings (the beans came off in hand fulls) resulted in 64 quarts of canned beans, and I don’t know how many meals and bags of beans for friends. The beans all were long, slender and very tender. Then the extreme heat and dry weather started and we decided not to irrigate, as we really had sufficient beans for this season – it was kind of a shame to see them whither away… Pretty sure I will plant the same ones again next year.
