bountiful beans

We planted Scarlet Runner beans up the back porch posts this year - they are in a big pot at the bottom of the stairs. These prolific beans are very wonderful and special, as they were brought over from England by our elderly neighbour (who has now passed away) and they were grown for many years by her father. I like to think of her when I see the lovely scarlet blooms - which attract hummingbirds, too! And it is good to know we can preserve seeds for the following years to come.
