first fruits

These are our first beans from our vege patch for the season.
Slightly disappointingly, they turn green when you cook them, but they're still delicious. And the novelty value of growing purple beans is definitely worth it for the junior gardeners among us!

Oh your so lucky to have homegrown beans. My dad used to grow those ones too.

I think my Dad had a trick for keeping them purple when cooked will ask him and let you know. So much fun growing your own vegies...if only I had made it out to the garden in the last couple of months.....

You're right, these beans are great for the kids, my girls love the novelty of watching them turn green when we steam them...

Enjoy your first bounty for the season, may there be many more to come...
