    Thanks for that info. I’ve already removed them. I replanted with ‘royal burgundy’ which is disease resistant according to your articles. I’ve planted royal burgundy before with good success. Hopefully that solves my problem.

    I've been doing blue lake bush beans but am moving to mostly pole beans. Damm animals like eating the beans and I can fence off the pole beans easier. I do kentucky wonder, scarlet runner, and blue lake pole. The scarlet runners are real big and make good dried beans if you leave them in until frost.

    Well, the wife decided she wanted all organic including the soil. So she went to a place and bought 25 yards of ‘organic” crap. Turns out it’s bad soil and I’ve been axing to amend it with copious amounts of compost. Since we have horses and chickens we have a lot of good, aged, compost. And to add to that issue, we are in a serious drought. Our 9’ deep pond is down 4’. Some in the area have gone dry. So I water daily in the morning. Thankfully we have two wells. However, due to the soil and drought, the garden isn’t doing too well.

    We don’t have any critters getting into the garden but to add insult to injury, wife left a gate open and 4 horse enjoyed the garden. And left a few deposits.

    Keep that horse and bird poop. Better than anything they sell you. Mix the bird poop with bedding/compost . Get a lumber cover and cover the pile, prevents nitrogen loss, water it well before covering. A few weeks you'll have black gold.

    Funny! I’m doing just the opposite. I’ve been growing mostly blue lake pole beans and switched to bush beans this year. Just trying something different to change it up a bit.

    God bless you both !
    Leaf blight sucks.

    About Blue Lakes. Those damn plants will work your ass to death!
    They never stop producing until a frost. Nothing kills them and they are prolific as hell.

    We plant pink eye purple hull peas, Kentucky wonders, Henderson limas, and Dixie white butter peas
    The butter peas and limas are my favorites.

    Hope our Son#1 and DIL are watering the garden while we spend money on gas driving around the country...

    This is the "good" DIL right? Sorry, I'm sure the other one is "good" too.

    But you do not want "the Karen" to rub off on the food you are going to eat and stuff... If you let that happen, next thing you know you will start planting soy and arugula and start watching Dancing. With the Stars. And that's just no good!

    Son #1 is drinking all Slippy beer and "watering" the garden, when needed. Stay away from lettuce for a while......
