Interest about the cauliflower protection. Do let us know how it works. At least the leaves are ventilated! Wink Poor Houdini, maybe build him (and the others) a small box to play in? I know I recommended this to someone else.

LOL sanderson they have a whole jungley yard to play in its the small box I'm trying to keep em out of.  We are very excited to try the asparagus beans and cant wait to see how that works out.  We have lady bugs and assassin bugs fighting it out with aphids and other pest.  I hate to break out the old faithful sevin dust but am afraid I'm gonna hafta.

I was thrilled this morning to find that almost al of the beans have sprouted.  Also this is the second day in a row Houdini kitty has not helped with the gardening in the box.  With birdy netting on top, Pipe tobacco sprinkled around the edges, and a large dose of seven dust to help with the leaf ventilation which has gotten serious.  Kitty has gone else where to play.  Or maybe it was the time we caught him climbing in and hit him with the jet spray from the hose.

Cappy,
We had the same thought, what can we grow in the intense summer heat. We tried the yard-long beans this year too. I can tell you they are slow to start after they sprout. Takes longer than regular types to get growing up the trellis. Once they do take off things get moving pretty fast. About the time they were blooming the hail storm cut most off at the ground. The ones that did survive grew 32 inch beans.  
They seemed to attract a lot of aphids compared to the Rattlesnake or Kentucky Wonders. 
I replanted and they are just starting to reach the trellis so we'll see how it goes.
Keep us posted on how they grow.

Yep, the aphids love the yard long beans for some reason.  But the vegetable that attracts the aphids every time are the Pinkeye Purple Hull Peas.

The article on them at lsu-ag said they paused after sprouting to develop a big root system.  The aphids or something almost wiped out the cauliflour in one night.  It went from a few holes to turning the leaves on several plants to lace.  I hated to do it but I drug out the seven dust and gave the whole garden a good dusting.  it seems that all beans sprouted 12 on each 4 foot end.  I'll see if I can find the article. Again.

Well it appears the cauliflower trick maghta woulda worked if the bugs hadn't ate the leaves into lace that the sun could pass through.  I drug out the seven dust and it seems to have stopped the bugs but the cauliflower all turned yellow.  made some nice big heads though so it appears to be partially successful.  I'll let yall know how they taste tomorrow.
