If pole beans provide beans all season which are longer, meatier, and better tasting, why bother with the bush beans? What can bush beans provide better except for a slightly earlier harvest?
I'll have12-18 sqft of trellisable space for beans next year. I'm just weighing if I should even plant the bush beans or fill the space with other yummy goodness.
On a side note, right now I've got two types of pole beans planted: Fortex and Kentucky Wonder. Neither are flowering yet, but the Fortex is vining like it is fulfilling a mission, but the KW is very lackadaisical about it. If you coax it to climb, stand on one leg, stick your finger in your nose and hold your mouth right, it may catch on. Is KW always a bear to train to run?
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
