snake beans

this year i'm growing a variety of pole bean called, rattlesnake.  i don't care much for the name but  they're beautiful and delicious beans.

this morning while i was out harvesting i found a gartersnake just below the trellis the rattlesnake beans are climbing.

garters are pretty mellow snakes and good to have in the garden---they eat insects and small vertebrates.   hoping the cats will leave this guy alone.
