I am pleased to report that the Runner Beans have survived the gales and are still upright. They were listing to port the day before but managed to hang on. I know other gardeners have had trouble with toppling wigwams and burnt foliage, but as you can see, because mine are sheltered by a hedgerow, they don't look too bad. There aren't many beans left to pick now, but it has been a good season, after a slow start.
The Brussel Sprouts have also survived and are standing tall. I never do very well with them usually, but this year there has hardly been any caterpillar damage, and so far the sprouts are firm but small. I have had problems with the sprouts bursting in previous years and becoming soft and loose, so we shall have to see how they progress through the winter.
