When do pole beans start climbing?
Last year I grew shell beans for the first time. Love love love. However, I thought bush beans would be the way to go, but everything was hidden and difficult to see under all the foliage. This year I planted pole beans, which were MUCH harder to find. I have erected teepees on which to climb and am wondering when the tendrils will appear and take hold. Right now they are about a foot high, still erect, but no sign of grabbing onto the structure.
