Hello. I have a small problem in the shape of a bean. I have planted runner beans and am still waiting for my first pod. Plenty flowers but not one set. Heigh ho.
However, that isn't the problem. The problem is that, because I suspected that I would have no runner beans, ( I rarely have any success with them) I planted a row of borlotti beans. And wow do I have success with borlotti beans. BUT. I don't know if I am supposed to eat them like runner beans, pod and all, or if i am supposed to wait until they are hard little dry nuggets and cook them like red kidney beans. Or both.
Anyone know what to do with them?
