kidney beans

i’m being a bit impatient with my beans.  i pulled all of the kidney beans because some of them were getting brittle shells…a sign that they were ready, or so i thought.  in fact, they should still be in the ground!

the correct way is to let them dry on the vine till all are brown, including the leaves.  i really should learn to listen to my neighbour tony.

that said, all is well and i have shelled them this morning for a nice harvest of 1.7 litre of beans (6 cups).  i’ll dry them some more before storing.  a bowl of chilli sounds good right about now.
