Smile Runner beans



Runner Beans

Bobs Wife Liz asks how many of you like them, Bob and Liz love them and and by the plate full

Here Liz is planting them out for this year, I also have some plants to put out here at the farm that Liz and Bob gave me, Timbo loves them too, so I can see I may well be cooking Runner beans this year

Not sure what your green beans or snap beans look like., but Tim would know for sure?

Our Runner beans look like this and grow up sticks with the red flower like here.



To cook them we cut them like this and cook them in a pot.

i googled it and they say our snap, string and green beans are smaller than your runner beans. ours are annuals and yours are perennials.

no we don't grow any we have a farm store in town only 1/2 a mile away so we can get them there. years ago we tried growing strawberries and pumpkins but the woodchucks, squirrels, racoons and other critters got them before we could.
