@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.

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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
I'm assuming they are going to get a little wider. Correct? At what point do you usually pick yours to eat? I don't want to eat many cause I'm trying to save seed, but I'd still like to sample a few.
I have both Good & Bad news.
Chestnut Flavored have made Beans. So far only 1/2 dozen pods, but I'll take what I can get. I credit it to having mostly shade with just enough sunshine.
Tennessee Green Pod & Woods Mountain Crazy Bean are toast. Literally burned up in this heat. They were in...
