The runner bean plants in my garden have produced beans. I can't really call them "my" bean plants, after all, Mam and Kelly have done more with them than I have. But they're the plants that were mine originally, so they're sort of mine. But that doesn't matter. What's important is that they're producing beans. And some of the beans are even ready to be eaten, so have been picked.
Actually, they may already have been eaten, since we let Dad have the few that were ready to eat. My Dad's not a huge fan of vegetables, but there's one kind of vegetable he loves... Runner beans! So we let him have the few that were ready, since he enjoys them so much. I'm quite fond of Runner beans myself, but at least I enjoy most vegetables. Dad is picky about his vegetables. Anyway, I'll be able to grab a few for myself from the next lot that's ready. There are still a good few beans on the plant that aren't quite ready yet, but they shouldn't take much longer.
