A Little Late this Year...

My scarlet runner beans are finally starting to produce flowers & beans. It has taken them a long time to recover from their transplanting from pots in the greenhouse to the veggie bed. Actually, I'm not even sure these are the same plants as I know I put in a few extra seeds later on 'just in case'...

One thing though; they do not like to climb up slippery plastic pipes. I should have set up twine like I do for the peas & I'm sure they would have been reaching for the tree tops long before now.

I hope with the wonderful rain we've finally begun to receive that the beans will grow quickly - I'm missing the flavour of fresh-picked beans!!
