    2019 Little Easy Bean Network - Come And Reawaken The Thrill Of Discovery

    @Bluejay77 , @flowerbug , @Zeedman and anyone else that I missed. I received an email from Annette's hubby. She is having some mobility issues so Forum browsing and computer work are difficult for her. She sends her love.

    @Zeedman @Bluejay77 @Ridgerunner Thanks everyone. I got concerned when she didn't answer my emails. I wonder what she's growing this year? I haven't been able to grow like I used to. I have 10 plants of an old variety of Okra. It's an early version of spineless. I have 10 Big Boy Cowpeas...

    Thank You @flowerbug. I'm probably just an ol' worry wart, but I just wanted to check on her.

    Has anyone heard from Annette (after midnight) lately? I'm a little worried about her since I haven't talked to her lately and she hasn't answered my emails.

    @Zeedman Well, wonders never cease. Last week, turned the water on and down to a slow drip. I guess they were thirsty. Here they come again.

    @Zeedman Hey Bud, I figured I would give you an update on Sierra Madre. We've had many days of 100+ degree days. A couple of days have hit 109. They aren't thriving, but they didn't die either. I'm not getting any beans at the moment, but I think once the days get cooler in September they...

    @Zeedman @flowerbug Thanks! I went back and forth in my head on whether I should pull or leave? Then thought to myself, just ask someone who knows. Hahahaa. I appreciate each of you for insight. The rain was supposed to already have started, but all I have so far is intermittent showers. Me...

    Thanks. I had a couple of pods that had filled out and were limp, so I pulled them

    @Zeedman Or anyone else. I have a question. I normally wait till my beans have dried on the vine before saving seeds, but we are in for a lot of rain starting tomorrow and all next week. I have a few beans that have made seed, but they are still green. Would it hurt to pick the ones that have...

    @Zeedman Hey Chris, it looks like I was wrong. I didn't think the runners had went up the pole that far, but my wife showed them to me today. It's up about 8'. I don't see very well, but here is a pic. I was right about all the beans being low though.

    Yes. They have run up about 4 feet, but I've noticed all my beans are low so far. It was my fault for not getting them something to climb in the beginning. I was gone for about a week and during that time they shot up a good couple of feet and I had to wrap the vines around the posts and...

    Thanks Buddy! I have a few at this stage. I kinda hate to eat them, as I need to save all the seeds I can, but I'm dying to try them. I was planning on simmering them with onions and bacon.
