A promise of things to come
My runner beans are romping away and the original ones which were sown indoors at the end of April have well passed the tops of their canes. The "runner ups" which I sowed directly in the ground in June are also doing well, having now grown to about 60cm/2ft, so I think my plan to extend the harvesting period by sowing some indoors and some outdoors may work out well.
The flowers started appearing at the beginning of the week and every day more and more are coming out. If you click the picture it will enlarge and show the beutiful red blossoms more clearly. Fresh green beans....YUM.
