They don't know beans about beans

Thanks to the ignorance of some who frequent the South Austin organic farmers' market, even if we arrive late, we make off with armloads of the most delicious wax beans in the world. The person selling them says that people reject them, asking him why he picks them before they're ripe! They are blemish-free, sweet, and crisp-tender. These may even be better than the ones we used to grow. We keep forgetting to ask which variety these are. We grew at least three, but the only ones I can remember are Pencil Pod and Brittle Wax. Green bush beans are wonderful, but yellow wax beans taste even better!
