So when it dawned on me (in October) that, despite the lack of a bumper bean crop, summer was definitely over. I gathered whatever I could and put them on racks in the shed to dry. Then I rather forgot about them... until today when I needed a few beans for soup (ribollita). I didn't have that much hope of finding anything useable within.
....except that the Cavolo Nero does very well in Scotland too!
