The Harvests are just getting better

After the very bad start to this year and delayed planting I suppose I can't complain as this was the harvest from yesterday.  There were so many beans to pick that I had to leave lots on the plants for another day.

 How about these Zebra beans ? aren't they amazing ? It's the first time I have grown them. They taste fantastic steamed as you would normal french beans. They don't retain the stripes or colour when cooked but they do taste different, delicious in fact.

and these are the purple dwarf beans that I am growing in a container at home in my garden. Again they lose some colour but are really tasty.

I hope you are all having some good harvests and enjoying the sunshine whilst we have it.  Today was a wet one but I'm not complaining as it saves watering the garden and plot.

Have a good week
