My yellow and green beans will be ready to pick tomorrow. I LOVE fresh beans-can't wait for the first meal. Your beans look just like they should look-should be tasty too😊

@gjones yellow beans 💛 I look forward to seeing those 😁 I was wondering if I’d picked a couple too early but the proof will be in the tasting 😉

Do these look big enough to pick? 🤔 (please excuse the sun-crisped leaves 🙈)

Once they start they don’t stop, and you wait till you got some that are over a foot long 😂 @kez001uk

They were shrivelling up here & flowers dropping off, but got a few pods. Mind you, these have had extra water, otherwise they'd all be dead by now 😯

@jeatacake I hope you get a decent harvest from them still ☺️ with any luck the worst of the sun is over with now. I am being very optimistic here 🤣🤣🤣

Cheers Kerry. Some American ones are doing well, but maybe the un-British weather is the reason!

Flowers all over the vines now. Do the beans follow flowering? Never grown runner beans before so a big bit clueless 😳

Yes first flowers, then beans😊

@gjones thank you 😊 the flowers are so pretty I think I’d grow them regardless of the beans 🤣

@Hayley.R squirrels are adorable little sods 😂 they’re very fast growing aren’t they! Didn’t expect them to shoot up in a matter of weeks! I really need to read up on growing veg 🙈
