Planting runner beans

We didn't do very well with runner beans last year, due to high winds, rabbits, and bad planning/timing. So we're determined to succeed this year. We've moved them back to where they were in 2016, which they much preferred as it's more sheltered and fertile, and we've constructed a permanent heavy-duty mesh for them using thick posts and wire stock fencing. They are already flowering, so fingers crossed (and the second batch almost ready to go in).
Runner bean plants outside to harden off.
