I’ve only cooked a couple of these beans as of yet, but I’m finally harvesting them in a reasonable quantity from the lovely scarlet runner bean trellis. They started flowering long before they started fruiting, so we’re hoping our then resident hummingbirds were visiting the flowers.
I’ll be glad to get a couple of side-dishes worth from these plants, regardless. It’s been a lovely addition to my small veggie garden here in Quebec.
Oddly, one of our summer standouts has been wild-foraged sea spinach (from a nearby beach where it’s naturalized). Here was a recent post about it. It’s ridiculously easy to collect on this beach, where it’s abundant.
And it’s delicious!
