Runner bean

Runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus (Runner bean))

Climbing the porch, got pretty far though nothing compared to last year still. I so enjoy growing these.

Are you getting a good crop?

I've only had one bean form. The cool doesn't treat beans well here without a greenhouse. I grow these for the vine, usually foliage all the way up to the roof and hanging off. Didn't make it that far this season. Also, I like to eat the blossom, a little fresh bit for the mouth like parsley.
