Runner Beans


After a disappointing start to our Runner Bean crop when I prematurely planted out the seedlings in a warm spell in May only to have them severely knocked back by a frost a few days later we are now inundated with them.
We have put them in stir-fries, curries, any and every meal we have and still they come.
They are delicious though, and high in protein. As a bonus the roots of Beans fix Nitrogen and so improve the soil in which they grow.
For me Runner Beans come highly recommended. Get some.
