I spent the day out in the fields to watch the harvest and check on the different varieties we have growing this year. Other than falling off the big harvester, ripping my jeans and getting scraped and bruised, it was a glorious day. There were several types of beans that we haven't seen in years that are coming back and I did a happy little jig in the beanfields as I saw them.
This is the flageolet that have been cut and are now laying in the fields drying. We've been lucky with the weather and they should be ready to harvest in about a week. They're still too green. As they dry, the pods will turn brittle and tan but of course the beautiful flageolet will stay celedon green.
