|Harvest Shelly Beans, Lettuce Mix, Mixed Baby beets|
|Hopi Purple Pod beans as green shellies|
Some folks have never heard the term 'shelly' beans. These are simply those sorts of beans that you usually eat as dried beans, shelled out fresh and eaten before they have dried. With frost a possibility any time the next couple of weeks I probably won't get too many pickings but it's nice to have them while I can. Next year I'll start them much earlier and pick beans in the late summer through fall. When I have them then I also usually have tomatoes and peppers and make garden chili when ever things are ready.
On another note I have discovered another gardening blogger and just love her blog. I have probably spent most of the afternoon reading it! The Empress of Dirt, a woman after my own heart!
