Magic Beans

Yin-Yang, a kidney bean from Thomas Etty.

If my son went to market with an old cow and came back with some of these beans, I'd be glad, because they're magical as well as heritage. There was much ooh-ing and aah-ing in the potting shed this afternoon as my friend Annie and I dropped the shiny soothing beans into 9cm pots. She described them as 'cathartic' which is not too far fetched, not at all.

District Nurse, a climbing French bean.
