Grow, Harvest & Cooking Snake Beans.

So far I have grown 4 different types of long beans in my garden. I have successfully grown red long beans, dwarf long beans, common long beans and the latest is snake bean.
 These are Dwarf Long Beans plants.
The plants grow to about 1.5 feet tall only.
 These are the Snake Beans plants.
I usually place 2 plants in a pot. They need support for their vines to climb.
 Hubby helped me put up these supports for the vines.
With these supports, I can plant cucumber, bitter gourds and etc.
 These are snakes beans hanging from the supports.
To protect these snake beans, I have to keep a close watch for the tiny black fleas that tend to cling to the flowers and beans. I usually use my garden hose to shoot water to easily remove them.  
 One of my mornings' harvest of snake beans.
Another morning I harvested these snakes beans and 3 dwarf long beans.
 Another morning, I harvested snake beans, dwarf long beans and eggplants (white & purple).
And one morning, I harvested longs beans and eggplants (white and purple) and one fig. 
 Due to the rainy season, this sweet fig looks like a laughing fig.
I usually sauteed the snake beans with roast pork or any preferred meat or prawns. Sometimes, I just steamed the snake beans and drizzled with onion or garlic oil and sprinkled with crispy fried onion or garlic.

He isn't really being slow about his promised return,
even though it sometimes seems that way.
But he is waiting,
for the good reason that he is not willing that any should perish,
and he is giving more time for sinners to repent.
(2 Peter 3:9, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. Snake beans? Not an appealing name but seeing your pictures, I understand how the name came about.
