My runner bean plants are now producing a couple of kilos (more than 4lbs) of beans a week, which is far more than we want to eat. I've already made a year's supply of chutney, to preserve some of them. So I cut a huge batch of them, blanched them and then froze them in bags of 500g each. That should keep us going through the next few months.
There's a Met Office Weather Warning, with severe gales expected in the next few days. That could be the end of my runner beans for this season. I'll be picking them daily until it hits us.
