This is my third and largest mess of green beans. The vines still look go so I am in hopes they will bloom again when the weather breaks and continue to bear. That was my thinking when I opted for pole beans to begin with. Plus I like them on a high trellis for the ease of picking!
All and all it is a fun and rewarding enterprise. I share tomatoes with my dear neighbors, Bill and Doris and have canned some too. When I get lazy I will freeze them with their skins slipped off for soups and stews this winter.
PS: I have used the drip hose and watered weekly.
