How many beans make five?

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Today was well past time to shell the dried up husks of the runner beans we’d put aside for growing next year’s crop.  We’ll only use the largest and it’ll save us….well a few quid anyway.  We often get more than one type of bean due to cross fertilisation but this year we’ve got four (maybe five) distinctive colourations.  Cool, eh?

Oh, and the correct answer is “A bean, a bean, a half-a-bean, a bean, a bean and a half” as I’m sure you knew.
