We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

On the run
We grow runner beans every year and we always end up with far more than we need. The inevitable result is that they build up in the freezer or in storage jars (we salt them to preserve them). We are trying to grow a few less this year but we are also having a go at growing French beans. Nothing will be ready for another month but when the crops come in, I'll be looking for some interesting runner bean recipes.
