Stringing Beans...I had no idea

Last night, as I was reading a 1930s diary online, I came across an entry where the woman in the diary said she "helped string and cut green beans".  What???  I've heard of "string beans" but what does it mean to string a bean.  I looked it up and learned something NEW!
Check it out!
I've never "de-stringed" my beans.  Might have to start.
That's all for today.  I've been reading and reading this January, mostly old diaries online and historical stuff.  It's always fun to learn a bit of history and to learn new things.
