Thank You Susan



My first harvest of Purple Podded Beans!!!  Extremely excited about these beans!  Again, I would like to thank my dear friend Susan over at e-i-e-i-omg Blog for the seeds love you girl :-). 

 

Can’t wait to cook them up and eat them.  The question, will I share them with my family or eat them all myself?  I'm thinking of eating them myself....this way Bulldog Man has no idea I was out working in my garden Bahahahahahaha!!!

    2. Susan,

      Oh sweetie, this morning I picked another large batch. I'm on my second harvest and still going. We had a nice meal with the first batch. I have to say they're delicious. Thank you again!
      I know I'm not suppose to be doing anything major.....and I'm not I promise. However, I still need to be out in the garden daily just to pick (small) things, or to clip small things.
      Hugs,
      Sandy

  3. Uh-oh, sounds like we need to send the Recuperating Police to your house! (Isn't it H-A-R-D to sit still when you've used to being so active??)

    That sweetie Susan strikes again. Those purple beans are so much fun . . . easier to pick, that's for sure! Enjoy!

    1. Mama Pea,

      Yes, I think you do.....LOL. It's very hard not do anything. I hate just sitting and doing nothing.
      I promise to slow it down and be safe on what I'm doing so I don't hurt myself.
      Hugs,
      Sandy

      They taste amazing. When you cook them they turn green. No. no purple color in my mouth, LOL.

  5. Greatest bean in the world - Royal burgundy, right? When I used to garden quite a bit in Wisconsin, I called those the "working woman" bean because you can find them quickly after work as the sun is going down :D

    1. Sweet Kymber,

      I didn't take pictures of my first batch and how I cooked them. I promise to take pictures of the next batch. Funny thing, these beans turn green when you cook them up. I cooked them with the potatoes in a chicken broth with ham, onions, salt, pepper, and a little butter.

      I promise not to over work, and to slow down.
      Sending hugs, and love your way.
      Sandy

    1. DFW,

      They're so much easier to harvest than your typical green bean. I promise to take it easy, now only 2 more weeks. See the surgeon for a follow up appointment today. I hope he has good news.

  8. Well, duh - I never considered how much easier they'd be to find and harvest than "green" beans that are actually green. The things one learns!

    1. Harry,

      The beans change from purple to green when you cook them. I think they taste better than the traditional bush bean.

  10. I've just thought of purple beans as a novelty. It never occurred to me they'd be easier to find for picking!

      Very easy to find for picking. Taste amazing, and change color to green when cooked.
