The scarlet emperor runner beans I planted along my back fence are pretty far along now.
Because I followed the spacing/thinning rules on the package, I didn't quite get the 'wall' of color that I was hoping for, more of an accent.
Still, they are prettier than just a chain link fence.
Next year, if I decide to do them again, I might ignore the spacing guidance to get more color...it kind of depends on how the beans themselves taste. As someone who is used to plain ol' 'green beans' it's possible I might not like these type of beans at all, so I won't care as much about overcrowding the plants.
