Good day, I have a type of bean growing in the yard. Would appreciate if someone would identify the variety and say if it is edible. Not sure the picture was attached. Thanks much

It seems like a type of Broad Bean or Runner Bean - although it's hard to say definitively without physical examination. Having said that - I know of no bean that is 'inedible' (i.e., poisonous) - although that doesn't mean the veg will be tender and tasty. The only way to know is to taste it - why not shell some, gently boil until tender, and taste? Maybe you have a winner - maybe not!
