Bring On The Beans

I love growing beans! They offer almost instant gratification with their big seeds and vigorous growth.
I snapped these photos of the soybeans and two varieties of "string" beans.
Last year I raised several different kinds of dried beans and saved the seed to plant this year.
I'm quite excited about the soybeans. They're a short season variety and some will be harvested as edamame, while others will be allowed to ripen and dry on the vine.
Ready now are green beans and purple beans (beautiful purple color which cooks to a deep green). Let me know if you'd like some. I have quantities suitable for eating and preserving.
