done planting beans

the other day i finished weeding a part of a garden outside the fenced gardens and planted it.
with the recent heat and me really needing to take a break to let various body parts recover i decided that this was enough bean planting for the season. i have a few bare spots i'll replant, but otherwise this is my list of varieties planted.
(G) generally available (N) network bean (O) other source (P) personal collection/selection for evaluation grow outs: my names may change as i determine if i really want to continue these - as of yet i haven't given any a final name.

Dang! That's a LOT of beans!
I haven't planted by favorite Blue Lake beans because of losing two rows to Bambi last season and still having the moochers hanging around. <sob!>

i like fresh beans too. wax beans, green beans, shellies, crunchy, lightly steamed, boiled to mush is even acceptable in some things (sheppards pie)... i usually am sampling at all stages any new variety to see how they're going to work out.
fence is all that works here and even then sometimes they find ways in or over. they ran down some fence out front the other night. it's only chicken wire and the poles weren't that strong either so they managed to knock it down. i have good poles going up and much better fence but need to recover some more before i start in on that project.
a good fence makes for tolerable bambi's. i'm pretty sure i'll put in a hot wire aka electric fence in eventually.
