Red Noodle Beans

Our Friend Ben at Poor Richard's Almanac wanted to see the red noodle beans. Well, here are a few pitiful examples. It is late summer here in north Texas and everything coming out of the garden is a little stunted. Everything but the okra and peppers. Okra and peppers love dry heat.
I have grown yard long beans for years. This year I found the red variety from Territorial Seed Company. I love territorial Seed Company. They have all the cool heirloom seeds.
The green yard long beans produced a little better for me. The red beans were just too much fun though. I have not had enough to cook because the Monkeys keep eating the straight off of the vines.
Other heirloom veggies I have grown this year include yellow pear tomatoes, green zebra tomatoes, Cherokee purple tomatoes, Ronde de Nice zucchini, and a couple of varieties of popcorn and sweet corn.
