runner beans

Yes runner beans are one of the few crops you can do this with, when they have finished cropping it is worth cutting the top growth off and leaving the roots in as the roots hold nitrogen which is good for when you plant beans the next year.

Does anyone recognise this?

Second night running damage to the lawn,the Badgers are back.
