A little about farming, a little about knitting and a whole lot about vegetable gardening.

We ate the Black Valentines tonight, steamed with bacon, and man are they wonderful. Sweet and tender. They really were stringless, too ~ even the more mature ones. I think they're the top ones so far in the Year of the Bean race.
Update: I boiled up the Red Swan the next night, but got suddenly tired before we ate them, and George forgot to put them up. So no review of them yet.

I will be eagerly awaiting your final YotB report. I'm hoping one of the red ones is a contender because it has to be easier to find red beans than green ones when you have 10' of vines on a 5' trellis.ReplyDelete
