Beans, beans the wonderful fruit. These pictures were taken right after I picked a whole bunch of the beans. You can see the strings they are climbing up. The beautiful flower is for Yard Long Beans, which is a chinese vegetable, look like a bean, used like a bean, it's not a bean. The other is a Fortex bean, seeds given me by my mother from her garden. They're doing fabulous and they taste great. I haven't grown climbing beans in a long time, I forgot how good they taste. They're so easy to grow. The only problem I've had is a bean beetle attacking them, but the beetles are easy to pick off and kill.
