They're so prolific, and take up so little actual garden space, I don't see any reason to grow any other variety. alrighta

Are you both talking about the same kind of beans, and where do you source the seeds? I've always concentrated on the bush beans on the theory that they might live long to provide a harvest. But this looks fun.

Thanks!

I think there are different varieties, but they're all very similar. They're called asparagus beans, yard-long beans, Chinese long beans (or something like that) and I've seen them at Home Depot. Here's what Baker Creek has to offer:

Baker Creek Long Beans

The best part is that you'll never have to buy another bean seed. These guys are so prolific, you'll get more than you could possibly eat or freeze, with enough left over to dry, save, and share with all of your gardening friends. I love you

Another advantage to these over bush beans is that a bush bean plant can take up a whole square. With these, you could get 4 plants along the back of a square, where they could grow out and up, and you could still have whatever else you want in that same square. For example, I have kale and peppers in front of mine.

Double photo but no link.  ? Looks delicious. It actually should be posted under the Food and Rcipes - Soups sub-forum so it doesn't get lost.

back to the long beans we have 2- 4' trellises on the ends of our 12 'box.  They produce more beans than the bush beans over the whole box do take up virtually no space and the wonderful thing is they are heat resistant and keep making the whole summer.  They are hungry though with all that production and need extra feeding we use miracle grow plant food to supplement their greedy need and they really keep making. Also in the hot steamy south they get some kind of small parasite in the moist heat of summer but good ole seven dust takes care of it.

We also get way more than we need, but I've never fed them anything. I will make very sure to get that bed well fed before we put anything else there, however. Thanks for the heads-up, Cappy.

That is interesting. Is that because of the type of soil in your area? I have never had to feed bean plants, and always had very high production from them.  I ensure the soil is rich in nutrients before planting by adding rock dust and bone meal, but once the beans are planted the only thing they get is water. I inoculate the bean seeds before planting so that they put a lot of nitrogen in the soil, and after the beans are done I cut the plants off at the soil level and leave the roots for the microbes to convert the nitrogen to a plant-available form - I don't use chemical fertilizers, insecticides, or herbicides, so the soil is high in microbes.

Look what Bob found, hanging off the back of the kitchen balcony. This is the 2nd one from a volunteer that I almost cut off cuz I thought it was nothing but leaves. This one was a little past it, so we removed the seeds, but the flesh was sweet and crisp. It was especially good, since the rest of the cukes are just about gone. happy turtle

We try to pick them before they start to bulge, but if we miss a few, we just shell them and add the shelled beans to whatever dish we're making or keep them for seeds for next season. There's a canned veggie called "field peas & snaps" that gave us the idea.
OMG, I have seen this at Krogers!  Thank you thank you thank you!  Here’s the thing, my work schedule is grueling!  It’s hit or miss if I can get out there at all during the week...dang it.

Zucchini! Most everything else I planted back in August is starting to peter out. But the zucchini is continuing to flower and tantalize with the possibility that more fruits are coming.

I'm reminded of that joke that an optimist is someone who the day after thanksgiving asks, "Is there anything to eat?"

My zucchini out paced the rest of my squashes too, as far as longevity!  I loved it!  My first year ever growing it, what a joy...

Had my first sweet pickles for lunch!  They were delish!  Enviable too (lol) Also for supper had an Unstuffed Pepper Casserole.   It was wonderful, yum!  Just add cheese.

A fig! One of our trees got confused and thought it was spring. It's loaded with little green figs, and one of them actually ripened, even after a hard freeze and almost no sun for several days. It was awesome! happy turtle

The best carrot I've ever grown:

Mark, last year was the best I ever did with carrots. So, take heart as I think one gets better at it each year. I think home grown carrots are the tastiest, including tender skins.
