We just moved to Nova Scotia (from Florida) and have been pleasantly surprised by some of the plants that are already established -- blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, hardy kiwi and garlic. The previous owner was primarily interested in ornamentals, though, so there are also tons of roses and other flowers. On our deck is a tangled pole bean that I'd like to identify -- basically, we want to know if we can eat it. The pods are pretty big, and thick, and grow in clusters of 3 to 6. The mature leaves tend to have 11 leaflets. The dried pods seem to unwind when they burst (ending up twisted) with little chocolate brown beans inside. I believe it flowered before we arrived so I can't speak to the blossoms. Any ideas? And if any additional pictures would be helpful, please let me know.
