I planted a row of Asian Long Zi beans as an afterthought, just to fill the garden out. I did not read the package very carefully and thus did not notice that I should have planted along a trellis to give them something to climb.
The plants have crept along the ground, and I recently haphazardly placed a few short (24" high) trellises to try to get the beans off the ground. My soil is fairly clayey, so I planted in mounded rows this year, which has been working well to keep the plants from being underwater during the occasional Iowa downpours. The beans, however, were growing on the ground and may heave been underwater during rains, so I will be discarding those and only eating the hanging ones.
My question is; these are supposed to be bush beans, but I have one 8 ft tall stalk at one end which does not look like it is going to produce beans, and a 3 ft tall stalk with large leaves at the other end. Are these stalks just part of the bush bean plants that have gone to seed, or did a pole bean seed get mixed in with the bush bean seeds? Should I pull out the stalks? Thanks for your help.
