I started picking these delicious, stringless beans on July 3.  Harvesting is GREAT.

On 5-13 I used the PAPER TOWEL METHOD of SEED GERMINATION.  In 3 days they had germinated.  I wanted to plant them directly into the gardens BUT it has been so cold, low 40's at night.  So I planted them today into 3" pots.  I am hoping to plant outdoors in 10 days or so. 

Fortex is my favorite.

I am now harvesting Fortex beans.  I am having trouble with the birds nipping at some of the vines.  Maybe the birds are trying to eat the Japanses beetles that love my bean plants.  So far it hasn't hurt the plants enough to stop them producing.  Have you had any trouble like this?
