More beans

Just harvested some beans to eat with some friends. 4 varieties of pole beans. 
Kentucky Blue
Chinese Mosaic
Chinese Red Noodle
Red Seeded Asparagus 
This is my first season growing pole beans. I grew bush beans previously to save space. I have read that pole bean plants produce over a longer period so I dedicated some trellis space to give them a try. I wanted to try multiple varieties to see which ones could handle the Fresno heat and still taste good. We'll see, another heat spell going on right now...
