What you see here is a photo of a 10 foot high tripod with "Emperor" Scarlett Runner Beans climbing on it. The vine was a sight to be seen, "...a mountain of lush green foliage covered in bright red flowers," in the words of our gardener Arlene.
Sometime between August 21 and August 23, the structure was tipped over, ripping the plants out the ground and knocking down a neighboring tomato plant.
They were so happy there; it's such a shame we won't be able to enjoy them any longer this season. If anyone out there has any information about it, please let us know. Meanwhile, Scarlett Runners, RIP.
