Took down the supports for the climbing beans this weekend. A real sign that vegetable growing season has changed. The remaining Barlotti's will have to be dried off indoors at home. It's a depressing time, especially when I see how much work is needed to get the plot in shape before the winter 'break'.
To cheer myself up I packeted up some of the beans I've already dried.
There's Canadian Wonder
Magic Purple Podded Climbing Bean "Malagrowther"
as well as Barlotti
Well that's what 99% of them looked like. When I podded these two (which looked the same as the rest on the outside) the beans were purple. I've saved them in a separate envelope clearly labelled. I wonder what the next generation will look like?
