I shouldn't have to ask this!
I've been gardening a very long time. Yet, I've never grown beans, peas or any legume for that matter. I have many questions and, know from experience that 2 questions-per-post is about max for responses. LOL
I want to plant all "pole" type beans/peas. Most of what I will grow will be pickled in a hot Cajun vinegar. I guess the intense seasoning will kinda negate me needing a specific flavored bean for pickling. A lot will be eaten fresh as "snap" beans. Here in SE Louisiana we eat tons of "red beans-n-rice. And, for now, the store-bought kind does the trick for dry beans.
Having fresh green-peas sounds like it would be fabulous. And, it seems that the southern peas can handle our summer heat.
What would be the most prolific pole bean to use for pickling that won't get all mushy?
Is there a great-tasting "pole" snap bean for coking, that is also prolific?
I have some seed of Yard-Long. Would these be a good choice for my intended purposes?
OK, I pushed the envelope and asked 3 questions. Thanks in advance for y'alls replies.
