The head gardener at the  Gardens of Gracerock likes his green beans. But did he plant the best green beans (which aren’t exactly green but more purple and green)?

We’re talking of course about the heirloom rattlesnake pole beans that are the penultimate favorite in our garden.  Although it is late in the planting season, we thought we’d do a bit of guerrilla gardening and plant a few seeds in his garden.

But lo and behold, rattlesnakes beans aplenty already abound in the Gardens of Gracerock. So we planted a handful of seeds, and picked a pound or two of beans.
