Harvest Monday, June 26, 2017

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2017
We are eating the last of the Spring Onions that I planted in March. I grew these large 'Fordhook' lima beans a few years ago. Even though they have been in the freezer for years, they were almost as good as fresh beans when I cooked them for lunch last Wednesday. Cantaloupe from a Farmer's Market and cornbread muffins completed the meal.

This year I planted 'Improved Taylor' beans. I have blooms and tiny pods!

A friend gave me the seeds. I think they are a kind of pinto bean.

Happy Gardening!

  4. Our spring onions are about gone too, but the big ones will be ready soon. The lima beans sound great to me!

  5. Not sure I'd be eating beans that had been left in a freezer that long but as long as they are ok

  6. Must be a good feeling to grow your own veggies Lea, I tried but gave up trying to fight the bugs ☺

  7. Stop! You are making my mouth water.

  8. Wow your onions sure grow fast! Nice looking limas. I probably won't do any this year but maybe next. Last time I grew King of the Garden and they topped a 10' trellis.

  9. I've even never seen Lima beans, let alone tasted them.
    What do they taste like?
