runner beans

This year Sue planted this number of plants



to give some idea of the harvest this is todays collection



this is about average daily amount for the past couple of weeks at least. so many even the neighbours have some given to them

I know now why they are called runner beans

Re: runner beans

I have a glut this year, carrier bags full have gone to all my neighbours and family and some overgrown ones to the goats.

Re: runner beans

I was a bit late planting mine this year so have only had one picking so far but there look to be more emerging so hopefully I shall get loads more in the next few weeks.

Re: runner beans

Started picking them last week with just a good amount for each day. Much nicer than the ones I had last year but didn't do so many.

Re: runner beans

A good year for them. I've picked them every other day. Some for us and some for the neighbours.

What with the runner beans and courgettes, they do OK.
