    Default Runners....at last!

    Noticed lots of baby runner beans on the plants today. I've had loads of flowers and was wondering if I'd ever see a bean this year but they've finally arrived. Only half an inch long but it's a start.

    I have been confused with my plants this year. Only a few have flowered but they are very slow to produce beans. I have picked the odd one. the other plants havnt even flowered. I had a hard time germinating the seeds too. I think it was too hot for them.

    I have picked loads of beans from the dwarf plants. A few people have been having problems it seems this year.

    Mine ones are strange.Last year I had some Painted Lady,this year I decided to go for Hestia(dwarf).Some plants have died,some are lying on the ground looking so-so.Now they are covered with bunches of flower so I might eventually get something this year.
