It's Bean a Good Harvest
I finished harvesting the Saturday Night Special beans (like smaller navy or cannellini beans) a couple of weeks ago and finished shelling them last evening. As you can see, I ended up with a quart of beans for me and a pint for the Contradance Callers as thanks for letting me use their garden space.
The Vermont Cranberry beans are still in the garden as they were planted later, but you can see the first of that harvest drying on the plate. Such a beautiful color and design!
I will definitely have plenty of dry beans for winter...
