Just a few that are ready - a little small maybe but all the sweeter for it.
You beat me to it by a few days I think. I'm planning to have my first ones in a day or two.
I picked the first ones earlier today, which I shall eat tomorrow.
I only planted a dozen plants this year - so they will have to be carefully rationed.
I had my first taste on Saturday! I've been testing the beans for plumpness for the past week and looking forward to harvesting a few for a salad today. Isn't it great!
PS first time for growing these pink beans, they're so pretty!
They are pretty but still turn that horrible sludgey green when cooked - I took the outer skin off and they looked a bit more presentable on the plate - only gave a minute portion each - but tasted really sweet.
I took the outer skin off the last pod, leaving just the bright green beans inside and ate those raw. Very nice but crikey what a fiddly job!
When they are cooked they just slide off quite easily.
