Scarlet Runner Beans

These Scarlet Runner Beans are a must for my garden every year. The bees and hummingbirds love them.

They are a pole bean, but the pods aren't terribly good. But, shelled and/or dried, the copious beans (as you can see in the photo) are crazy good!

Wow, check out this gardener's patch of runner beans!

Really, never tried them? They have pinker varieties you know.
