I grow a variety of beans, either dwarf  or climbing beans but the only ones I don’t grow are runner beans. Somehow I find the flavour of the others is much better and also when slicing runner beans I found that it irritated my hands.

The blue ones don’t keep their colour when cooked, they turn dark green but the yellow beans look just about the same when cooked. Blue climbing beans are Blauhilde and the yellow are Golden Gate. In my opinion they are much tastier than runner beans.

My french beans are both dwarf and climbing, very prolific and very tasty.

Another splash of colour comes from the greenhouse this time – tomato Tigrella, cucumber Marketmore and lettuce Salad bowl.
