This might be your dinner one day soon! The beanfields here in California are doing very well this year and we're crossing our fingers for a huge, healthy crop.
If we run short of Scarlet Runners, you can point to this photo and blame me.
The Scarlet runner has the prettiest flowers of any bean.
These are Vallartas. If you can see, the flowers are purple.
Remember, bean flowers are edible. You can even plant beans now just for eating the flowers. The runner beans (ayocotes) are the best.
