Wow, poetprose, I'm way jealous of your bean harvest! We've been focused on the nightshades so much, I've pretty much ignored the rest of the garden and planted later than maybe I should have. It's a HUGE backyard though and if my bf had his way, we'd have no grass and put in paperwork to become urban farmers, lol. They'll come in eventually and Murphy's Law dictates the harvest will then inundate us and we'll have to take time off of work to keep up with it in August. Ah well. The cucumbers have started climbing up their "ladders": 8' 4"x4"s with dowels placed every foot in alternate directions for them to climb up. That's in the name of saving space because cannellini, fava, romano, kentucky wonder wax, and trionfo violetta beans are growing
in that patch along with corn and pumpkins. We need all the space we can get. The English cucumbers have flowers
on them but no fruit as yet and the Lemon cucumbers are lagging behind somewhat. At least they're in full sun, not like last year when they were shaded by the tomatoes..and we still had a decent harvest.
Cucumber salad with a bit of mint and yogurt is heaven on a hot day. Or you could make up a ton of tabbouleh. Or you could make tzatziki sauce for pitas.
Just some options from my mediterranean imagination, lol.
