Have these beans gone to seed?

A friend gave my husband a bag of green beans today. They look rather plump to me, and I don't want to waste time cleaning, trimming, cooking them if they're no good to eat.
Here's a photo - what do you think?

Give it a try as long as the pods are brittle enough to snap. Lots of folks like beany beans, especially cooked in the traditional southern style.

Thank you, farmerdilla. :)
What is the traditional southern style of cooking green beans?
I like to toss whole beans with olive oil and chopped garlic then bake for a few minutes. ~JoAnn
