I'm still harvesting pole beans, though most have had a lull, forming seeds at relatively small sizes, due to the heat of August. But the Thai red long beans are still going nuts! And I saw a lot of other small beans forming when I harvested yesterday, probably because of it getting cooler.
I had my second flush of pole beans last couple of weeks. I'm so over picking green beans. We eat them just about every night with dinner. I've frozen them too. I would have brought them to work to give away but I haven't been there. I sasy now I won't plant as many next year, but we all know, I will.

The red cut short beans got a little too big when we had all the rain from the hurricane a few weeks ago so I let them go for seed. Picked several off the vines last week and let them continue drying inside. Kiddo and I shelled them out this morning and incorporated them into her math assignment. Have a good supply for next year and enough to send to my great-aunt who according to her daughter has been lamenting not growing them anymore. My aunt will be 97 this fall and is in the beginning stages of Alzheimers, so hoping they'll bring a smile to her face next year.
The vines are starting to produce again and should get a harvest of them again soon as well as the Kentucky Wonder beans.

Growing a variety of pole lima this year, Worchester Indian Red, and getting a lot. They can be harvested and eaten in the pod or eaten as dried beans. Does anyone have any preferences on this. How big is too big to harvest as an edible pod bean. Anyone canned them in the pod?
