This year I grew borlotti beans.
I had four plants and you might remember I posted about them when they were very small.
Well they grew. And they had lovely pale pink flowers. And beans.
And eventually the beans had lovely stripey pods.
Then I harvested them.
There were 11 bean pods in total.
Which yielded 40 beans.
They do look beautiful don’t they.
This year we planted borlotti and runner beans.
They’ve survived the onslaught of snails this year, and improvement over last summer.
They’ve produced nice flowers.
Pale pink on the borlotti, scarlet on the runners.
But few beans.
So far I’ve counted 10 borlotti pods and 1 runner pod.
From 10 plants.
I guess its a better return just than money in a bank account, maybe.
So what shall I do with my 11 beans?
