Strange bean

I really want to tell you all about the amazing time I’m having at the Pro Walk Pro Bike conference and how much fun I’m having exploring the host city (to be revealed in a later post), but time is short, so I bring you a little garden tale.

While picking a very large quantity of green beans on Sunday, Pam remarked, “I’m just glad I haven’t picked any of the black with green stripes variety.”

Only a short time after making that comment, she came across this guy.  Harmless, but not exactly what you want when you’re expecting a handful of green beans!

    Oh My! I’m not sure I would handle that one terribly well! One time when I was a little girl we had a black garden hose with pale yellow stripes. (You can guess where this is going.) Yup… one day I went to pick it up, only it wasn’t the hose, it was a garter snake. The thought of it still gives me the willies!

    Have a great time at your conference!

      Luckily, a helpful neighbor came along and relocated the little fellow. They can be quite helpful in garden pest management 🙂
