We were able to spend almost a full Saturday at The Open Gate Farm, with Grammy and Grandpa, before they headed off on their mission trip. They were kind enough to introduce us to Scarlet Runner Beans, well, more like, our little helper wanted to help Grammy shell some dry beans, and it just went from there. It helped that the little helper’s favorite color is Purple (Burple). The beans were beautiful, to say the least. We also dug a bunch of beets, and picked a couple hundred pounds of apples (sauce, cider, and chips). I’m not sure what we are going to do with all the beets in our garden now that we have almost all the pickled beets we go through in a year put up. I’m sure we’ll come up with something.
Note the purple ‘holey shoes’
Beans and pods.
Littlest hands holding the beans.
Some wonderful memories.
