This weekends harvest

Got into the garden and got the rest of the tomatoes - still have to finish the borlotti beans but we are almost all in!! then to finish canning - then I get to REST maybe : )

a few more apples to can if I have the gumption - got about 5 trees more in that back field - we'll see if I get there...

The beautiful Borlotti beans

- the girls got a bits that where too far gone : )

and the winter crops are doing well - beats, parsnips, kale, cabbage, spinach, turnips, arugula -- all those cold weather dark green ones... : )

What a bountiful, beautiful harvest! So, do you plant this stuff for the flavors or the COLORS? Because they photograph So well!

Clare, a bean question. Is that wire strung up like a clothesline to have the beans go along (e.g., from the ground, up a stake, along the wire)?

HI Lois - the top wire holds up the verticals (baling twine:) that the beans climb reach the top and hang out there too! : ) that top wine is at about 7 feet --

I get it - thanks! Yes, I'm going to plant beans, probably along the picket fence. Oboy!
