Three Kinds of Beans

Green, purple and rattlesnake beans

Heirloom rattlesnake beans have purple markings making them rather exotic looking.
My rattlesnake beans have started producing.  I was so excited this morning to see them in ready-to-pick size.  I love growing pole beans and I especially like when the flowers add interest as well as the beans they produce.  It's just a little added fun to getting edibles from the garden.

And now I am drowning in green beans.  I have three quarts of them.  I've decided to freeze some but prefer to share the excess with friends.  I'm dropping off a goody bag of beans, cukes and tomatoes to a friend today.
