This year I decided to try pole beans, and I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly the plants grew and how much they produced. My entire family basically had beans for dinner for most of the late summer.
One problem I did encounter was that they grew so high! I unfortunately wasn’t able to plant them at the northernmost section of my garden, due to having a shared plot, which meant that a lot of my partner’s garden was shaded.
So, I do recommend that you plant these in an area that won’t shade the rest of your garden. And remember to get extra high poles for them to grow on! My beans grew to about eight feet!
