The Cowpea that Michael Spinelli mailed me seeds of that he suspects is the result of chance crosses in his greenhouse between 'Whippoorwill' and a Thai Yard Long Bean has now begun climbing like crazy in a back porch 18 gallon Water Wise Container Garden. No blooms yet, but it will be fun to see if his hunch is correct when the pods form. A brief infestation of large dark aphids has largely self corrected, which happens often here each year on my various cowpeas.
