Green beans-- picking tips, and size?
My daughters and I picked some green beans tonight for the first time-- some of them are quite large, did we let them get too large? Are they still good at, say 5-6" and the thickness of a finger?
Also, are there any tips to picking them? Some that the girls were helping with snapped off not at the stem, but in the bean itself, so I'm sure those won't keep as well? I ended up just pulling a few of the little bushes out of the ground completely, so that they could pick them more easily... Would those have produced more had I left them in the ground?
Thanks in advance!
