Oh, stinkiness! I am just washing out with soap and freezing any excess. So far no problem. I am even using some milk which had kind of gone off and was saved frozen for this purpose. From what I read, it doesn't seem to matter whether fresh, dehydrated, frozen, skim or whole. I guess time will tell.
By the way, your garden looks fabulous and wildly productive. I am still suffering from over-planting syndrome. Re: bush beans versus pole beans, it is pole beans all the way for me. I plant a very few bush beans for earliness but the pain is not worth it. Rattlesnake beans are among my favorites. I am happy to share a few seeds if you would like. Great flavor, tough and hardy and continue to produce until frost. And if you let them get away from you, you just have some dried pinto-type beans. I have been growing some on an upright fencing we set up over a raised homemade big planter box (10 feet tall and it's not high enough). It is set up right at the back steps so I can stand on them to pick. This year, added something new. Arches! for beans, tomatoes, etc. from cattle panels like you have seen all over the internet. The picking should be vastly better.
Very good observations about the strangeness of this year. We are having a different set of strange here in Alabama. My garden went in very late so some strangeness is just becoming apparent. No problems here with fruit-set on the tomatoes, though.
