Doing great in the HEAT!

My Mbombo Green Pole Beans are doing great in the heat, even though I forgot to water them a few days. Oops! They sprouted a few days later than some of my other beans, but were the first to produce pods. I'm eating the young beans and leaving some on the vine to grow to full size for drying. The dried beans are a really cool green color. A new favorite for my hot summer months!
