I have a corn and green bean garden. Here’s a few seconds video of it. https://youtube.com/channel/UCZ3IUKYvyBLVQ3Y6nDnsoOw. I am harvesting green beans but I’ve ended up with some kind of extra bean among the bush beans. Those plants are sending out vines that act like they want to climb. I planted Blue Lake Bush beans and might have accidentally grabbed a few of something else. I don’t know. These were seeds from a few years ago so I don’t know what happened. Can anyone identify this kind of bean?

Got no idea on your beans maybe try TEG forums.
Definitely something you would shell out I would say.

Good looking stand of corn.

What happened to your goat?

Thank you! I looked on the internet and I think it’s just a different kind of green bean. I know I only used seeds labeled green beans. Lol! I treated her for meningeal worms and she is 99% better. 🥰

I usually plant Blue Lake bush green beans. There always are a few that turn out to be climbing beans. I trash them because the beans they produce are not even close to being as good as the Blue Lakes. I don't know if it is just an off variation naturally occurring or just poor quality control.

Ah, yes, that’s probably the case. Well, my chickens will like them. Nothing goes to waste around here. 😀

My best guess would be you planted Romano Beans aka "Italian Style" green beans. Supposedly as good as regular green beans. I do agree it could be some mutation though. We only every plant bush beans and never had anything else grow but I only do one packet a year, so odds are low I guess.

I bought Kentucky wonder last year and in the middle of the row out comes flat beans. Seeds all looked the same.:hu
I thought maybe you had a green bean that people grow for the seed. Quality control ain't what it was.
Very much agreed!! Esp after the mass gardening of the pandemic with everyone buying every seed/plant they could find it seems the quality is in the can. I planted an entire package of pickling cucumbers and an entire package of slicing cucumbers, out of both packages in total I got 3 plants. I will say my snow peas and sugar snaps did great though, we have already eaten two meals of snow peas and sugar snaps are coming on now.
