We've got a few pounds of not young pole beans (Kentucky's) picked
yesterday and I'd like to know more about leather britches before
stringing them up to join the hot peppers and herbs dangling from my
office ceiling. This is the first year we've grown poles, always bush
before. Man are they prolific!
Do you clip one end before stringing them? Do you remove the beans from
the pods before using? Are they too mature to use when the pods have
turned brown and wrinkled? Is that what the still green ones will look
like when there're dry? Thanks for any advice.
