I continue to be impressed by this amazing bean variety. At the beginning of September, I expected to pull the plants after what I considered to be a full harvest, but I’m an optimist and when I saw new blossoms, I left them alone.

The vines are bedraggled and obviously the worse for wear, but they continue to produce. We’ve picked a couple of quarts of beans from our four-foot row every week this month. And more are on the way.

First harvest: July 20. Still harvesting: September 20. Fortex, you’re a keeper.
