My beans have started ripening. They're so tasty! The ones on the right are from the garden and the ones on the left are from the shops. It probably helped that this batch of store-bought beans were a it over-sized and stringy, but my garden's beans are crisp and tender.
I'm only getting a small handful at a time as of yet, but when the second bean plant starts to get going (it's covered in flowers) I should start to see bigger harvests. Yum!
