Or how to grow pole beans properly. A photograph taken of Esperanza’s then garden. Remember, it supplied the tenant farmer, his family, and Aunt Carlotta (pictured at the far end of the row) over the winter; it supplied all the guests at Esperanza, ranging from a constant 5-8 with spikes of close to 20 for weekends throughout the summer.
The garden shown is no longer part of the property, that section was sold off in the 1960’s and is now a winery.
My pole beans don’t look like that. Not only are poles not big enough, but this time around in addition to the turkeys, there was a nice young doe taking a nap….they are now netted.
