We harvested our first crop of runner beans this weekend. It was only 12oz worth, but the first harvest is always the best!
As you can see from the photos, pollination has been good, and we haven’t suffered from too many flowers dropping off, so there are lots and lots of runner beans coming along.
It’s important once crops like runner beans and dwarf beans are ready to harvest that you do pick them regularly. Otherwise, if you let the beans start to go past their best and get “poddy” the plant will start to produce that type of bean from an early stage.
