I was reading Sunset's The Edible Garden this week while we were traveling and learned something I have battled for several years. I plant bush beans rather than pole beans. I discovered that they are determinate plants that bear all at once, in a week or two, then are done. Crazy! How did I miss that, and continue to plant them and try to make them produce and wonder what I was doing wrong? Next time I am planting pole beans. I love green beans!
