I'm glad I waited on my green beans. It took a while but they have turned out to be the best producers in my garden this year. My son and I have been picking a few handfuls every few days for the last week or so and last night we had enough for everyone. I grilled some chicken and boiled some pasta. Into it went the steamed green beans, chickpeas and a spicy tandoori paste. It was great! Amazing how much better something tastes when you grow it yourself.
I think we'll get at least this many more green beans before they give up the ghost. The plants appear to like the cooler, wetter weather. Next year I'll move the plants to the other side of the fence so they can get some better morning sun. Hopefully they do better.
Anyway, I know this is a puny harvest compared to some others, but I'm very happy with this. With all the water and labor costs, these are probably the most expensive green beans I've ever eaten
