Late crop french beans.
I fond a stray packet of french beans in Aug so planted then in a tray & took a chance. Almost every seed germinated so I planted the out on the lottie at the end of Aug much to the interest of other plot holders some thought I must be nuts.
I have has 2 small pickings & today I got 2lbs!! not bad for a newbie.Lets teach kids to cook.

Wow. Well done indeed! Delicious too. I'm hoping to squeeze a few more out of mine before dragging them down.

If you have a heated greenhouse you can grow them 1 to a 7" or 8" pot feed them with tom feed & they give you a crop. I grow The Prince like this & they worked really well this year - in fact it was the best success I'd had with the damn thingsntgNever be afraid to try something new.

I am always amazed when something turns out,i dont expect it too but you really feel you get something back. Just goes to show you don't always need to follow the rules!!

I only have a cold greenhouse, I do use it to start some early crops. I had a few purple beans but they went green when I blanched them, is there any point in paying the extra for them if they go green anyway??Lets teach kids to cook.
