Giant runner beans
When you move to France you might find some spare time to grow vegetables!
One vegetable that I can recommend is the Giant Runner Bean!!
It is 35 to 40 cm long. You only need 1 or 2 per person without sounding too mean!
They are rather easy to grow and you will a good crop. When I get too many, I chop them in small pieces and freeze them so I can enjoy them in the winter.
If you live in France, you might have difficulties to find seeds so get a packet next time you visit the UK.
I got my seeds from an English friends who lives in Brittany.
