The latest beans

These are some I grew earlier!

The seeds came from Egmont seeds, and the variety is called Cobra. They are a climbing bean but a wigwam of 6-foot stakes was all they needed, so not too rampant. And they are good to eat – very tender and a mild but pleasant flavour. Perhaps their best feature is how amazingly quick they are to start producing; the catalogue says matures in 75 days but throughout the warm days of summer I’m sure they were much quicker than that. Definitely on next year’s seed list.

With that in mind I sowed the last of the packet about three weeks ago; it didn’t seem worth keeping just a few until next year. Now I’m just hoping for a long enough autumn to get a few feeds off them.

They are currently about nine inches tall!
