Counting my beans
Starting to fill the dried legumes and pulse jars in the pantry again. This morning the Milagro bean field offered some ready to shell pods of exquisitely speckled Othello Pinto beans.
Chosen for their purported yield and disease resistance, it is my first year of sowing this variety of Phaseolus vulgaris. Also found a few pods of Black Crowder cowpeas (Vigna unguiculata).
I don’t produce nearly enough pulses to be completely self sufficient in this department as my vegan diet has me eating some kind of bean or pea almost daily. But some of my winter food will definitely be grown at #6thavenueshala. For which blessing of earth to put down roots and grow food I am truly grateful.
