    I'm not sure about pole beans, but I love green beans placed in a casserole sprinkled with olive oil, then spices. Microwave 6 - 7 minutes. So very good!!!! And too easy!

    Think dry, hot weather might have caused it. Happens to the best of us.

    I just rinse, add some diced onions and bacon grease. With baked chicken, mashed potatoes. Can anyone tell I'm hungry?

    The pole beans might be past their prime...a bit old.....or hot sun took all the moisture out.

    We have white half runners on a fence in the garden. Wehave had very little rain, so hubby has been watering them religiously and when I get any, they are very good. I imagine the lack of water is what is making them tough. I shell out the tough ones.

    the pole beans i grew one yr, were really good. you must have left them too long, before you picked them. a pressure cooker fixes it up tho.
