runners

I really haven’t had a good year for runner beans! Very poor germination, of both home-save and bought seed, followed by decimation of young plants by slugs, followed by an ongoing struggle with aphids (next year, I won’t plant them next to broad beans, even if it does make crop rotation difficult!).

Still, I’ve eventually got to the point of having some flowers … so hopefully not long before I see a few actual beans. I don’t think a glut is going to be a problem this year, though!
