Purple Beans

The beans and peas are beginning to ripen in the garden. One variety is new for us, the Royalty Purple Pod Bean. The color is a delightfully creepy purple, but tastes great. I ordered the seeds from Seed Savers. We will be freezing bags of beans over the next few weeks. (image from seed savers)

I've had no luck with beans yet this year. I'm still hoping.

How interesting! I've never seen purple beans before! I may have to hunt some of these down at the farmer's market in the morning!
