Pole Shelling

Pole beans are a great way to save space in the garden, as they will grow to great heights when trellised properly.  They also grow up off the ground out of the weeds and are free to blow in the wind late in the season, speeding the drying time and preventing moldy seeds.

Look for the carrot for the Annie's Favorites.
