Picking More Beans - The Perdy Ones

There were some more chores to do at home this weekend. We've had alot of cooler weather and even 2 days of heavy rain - time to get the beans picked and drying.

Here the coach is training the new freshman on the finer points of bean-pickin'.

These beans were fun - very pretty and easy to find in the bushes. You can see, many of them have already started drying...

We got alot of them off of the single row we planted.

We took the pods and spread them out to dry in the Garden House - of course we needed a bright sheet to spread them on!

As they dry, the pods are splitting open and dropping out the colorful beans. Hope they taste as good as they look.
