beans, beans, beans!

the beans are really starting to come on now.  i think green beans may be my favorite vegetable so this is a pretty exciting time of year for me.
i had my coffee with the scarlet runner bean vines this morning.  they usually don't set any pods until late in the summer but they put on quite a show with their blossoms all summer long.  they make the carpenter bees very happy.





i picked a gallon of beans late this morning.
