Rattlesnake beans
A delicious pole bean either eaten fresh or dried, the vines always put out way more than we can eat, so we wind up with lots dried and used in soups and chili during the winter. Not sure why they’re called “rattlesnake beans though. They don’t look or sound like rattlesnakes.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
