A good year for beans

flowering bean plant

2007 was a very good year for beans. I keep some in pots on the balcony and they grew really good. I believe that's because the summer was not too hot and sunny. On a really hot day, the water I give them in the morning doesn't last till the evening and they probably don't like the draught. Well, this year we had many cool and rainy days and the beans grew and made lots of flowers.

Some months later, the flowers had converted into really big beans - the biggest I have ever harvested, and the quantity was not bad, either:
