Hmmm....almost 8 inches, very nice, GF!

I'm rather pleased with these 'White Lady' runner beans, about 18 inches long (and still young & tender) some of the best:

Hello. I don't grow veg but I do know how the weather has affected all plants.

I can definately see the attraction though, nice Carrots & Aubergines. Must be great to grow your dinner
