They are a simple pole bean but what I like about them is that they seem to stay tender for a long time (for those sort of people who forget to pick regularly or go camping lots). They are also very productive and they taste good raw or cooked (especially cooked and then topped with ground almonds toasted in butter with a sprinkle of Parmesan and lemon).
This year I feel lucky to know some other gardeners who are also interested in seed saving. These carrots were seeds given to me by two garden goddesses. I have two little rows coming up and I just planted two more. I think they are multi-coloured ones, aren't they Andrea?And these are some beets that are finally sprouting. I was reminded yesterday that I want to plant extra this year so I can make huge vats of borscht to freeze for the Winter months.
