    Great beans for forgetful gardeners

    Posted by Juliet on 14th Oct 2020

    I suddenly remembered that I ought to sow some beans, but it was getting a bit late for it--early July. I chose to try these beans because I knew they were quick-maturing. The beans were sown on 13 July and picked on 13 October. The pods are flat and have a good strong, earthy flavour. The texture is meaty. Would grow again. These are low-maintenance plants and vigorous.
