Kentucky Pole Bean

The pole beans are maturing. I picked approximate nine beans today. I hope with another harvest tomorrow, I'll have enough beans to cook.

My skinny Kentucky beans make me long for a bean I first discovered in England. A staple at the nurseries, the runner beans are very long beans which are deliciously tender. When I first grew them, I was surprised at the tenderness of the pod after seeing the length. When I first moved to California, my nursery carried runner beans in Renee's Garden Seeds. Lately, however, they have not carried that variety. So its skinny short beans for me this year!
