I love growing green beans in my backyard. The only problem its hit or miss. By the time it is ready to have long beans, it gets too hot and they dry up. I was once successful growing both green beans and ampalaya (bitter melon) in the same area. The bitter melon was abundant that I was giving it away to friends and neighbors and I had enough green beans every week to make for one dish.
Guess what happened. We have gophers in our neighborhood that dug my backyard non stop. They dug that area and destroyed my plants. It made me so pissed. That was the last time I had these two vegetables growing in my yard. I planted in a different area but they don't seem to thrive in a more shaded area. This time though, we have added chicken wires underground.
I hope by early fall, I can grow these vegetables again. It is such a joy picking vegetables in my own garden and cooking it. It is fresh, organic and no pesticides what so ever.
