Firstly, to my American friends
This picture above is taken about a month ago.
And today, the climbing bean was ready for the first harvest. I picked up quite a lot of pods and have enough to make the vegetable stew and a salad. Personally, salad is more to my liking. I just cook the pods in a salted water, drain, and dress with some chopped garlic, vinegar an olive oil. I eat this salad cold.
