I've always read that runner beans are thirsty plants, but mine are positively basking in the heat, doing much better than last year's. They've reached the top of their supports and are making a bid for freedom along the washing line. Full of flowers too, and lots of buds. The poor spuds, on the other hand, (in the bed behind the beans to the left) seem to lose water faster than the roots can take it up. I'm drenching them every other evening.
