First Beans

We picked the first pole beans of the season tonight.  We got 618 grams (nearly 1.4 lb.), mostly of the ’emerite’ variety, which I have found in the past grow faster and produce earlier than ‘Kentucky blue’, my old standby.

The season's first green beans came to 618 grams.

This year, I planted four feet (1.3 m) each of ‘Kentucky blue’ and ’emerite’ pole beans along one side of my six feet (2 m) tall trellis.  I planted ‘super sugar snap’ peas on the other side of the trellis as usual; they are nearly done producing.  The pea vines don’t quite make it to the top of the trellis, but the pole beans are already trying to climb higher.
