    Good time to thin out a few as each plant can take up a lot of space.
    This is what I do. Now is a good time as you won't damage the roots if you take some soil with them.
    The thinnings get replanted in other areas.

    Beautiful!

    Oh....gosh- just had a thought....I'm keeping my fingers crossed they are the dwarf variety cos otherwise they'll swamp the beans.

    OK, eat the nasturtium leaves, flowers and young fresh seeds in salads or pickle the fresh young seeds and use them as capers.
