Thinking Out Loud

       As our first snowfall is hitting along the eastern shore, I am happy that just a few days 

                       ago I 'harvested' the few Scarlet Runner beans left for next years crop.

                      I cannot remember the last time I have had to buy these beans to plant.

  I wait for them to turn brown on the vine and then bring them in to dry out completely. 

  After a few days I 'shell' them and put the beans in a paper bag and place in the fridge.

And towards the end of May I will take them out into the garden once again, and continue the cycle.
