Beans on the 2 Train

Guess what this bag contains.

Yup, two small frozen porchette and two pounds of artist-grown Tarbais beans.

I think I can safely claim that this is the only bag on the uptown 2 train that contains two pounds of dried French Tarbais beans grown in Pennsylvania by an Italian artist.

Last of Susan's Beans

We had a hard frost this weekend so my eleven year old and I harvested the rest of the beans with flashlights in the dark (a fun adventure!), all which are drying on platters now. (I had to cull out a few moldy beans so now I am storing them all on platters until Elaine calls them to herself.) Can't wait for the cassoulet party!

Harvest Report

Bean harvest. I put them in the jars to measure volume (just under 3 quarts). But since the beans are not fully dry I have them spread out in a single layer on cardboard to finish drying. Will report weight then.

Cut down plants in wheelbarrow, some shelled beans in pot, bean poles down on the barn floor, that's that.
