Bean rust

I'm sorry but I seem to be having tech difficulties as my photo won't upload it seems! 


The beans are scarred similar to acne scarring I would say.

Hello all


I have identified (with help) that my french and runner beans have bean rust but is that what is also causing the markings on the beans?  


I am also worried that now I have the disease (so to speak 😀) will I never be able to grow beans in that are again? It is a relatively small area of purpose built raised beds of 2m x 1 adjacent to 2 smaller where I've no doubt the spores have settled as well. 😦

Due to a lack of response I've carried on searching and it seems it is called Euonymus scale.

Anyone recognise this insect infestation and the best way to treat it please. The bark also seems to be covered in a brittle scaly crust.

Thankyou so much...that's not one I've ever heard of and yes, you're right, it doesn't do anything but leaf up. I've just had a tree removed behind it so I'm hoping it'll like the additional light this coming growing season.

I've finally lifted 6 or so red spring onions which I left in the veg trug and have subsequently gotten as large as a regular onion. I'm presuming they are still edible and could be used as a cooking onion?? I'm not a great fan myself so can someone confirm they will work as a cooking onion?

Saving runner beans for podding

That's great. I've picked them as I want to keep harvesting - thrown so many away in the past! Should make a nice soup addition.

Thanks Steve and Runnybeak (great name!!)
