Last week’s heat wave fried & dried the pole beans so fast the pods didn’t have time to split. Now I’ve got a couple pounds of beans waiting for chili season.

In the photo are Rattlesnake (spotted), Forex (white), and some red bean that I can’t remember. I really have to start writing these things down…

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.
