Mistakes Along the Way

August 12, 2009

This is the first year I have grown beans, and so far the haul has topped three pounds. I keep my beans in a green bucket on the kitchen counter to eat from whenever we want.

Then I thought the beans would be better if I froze them. I dumped the bucket onto the counter to find a pile of anemic, papery pods. No snap to them. Just yellowed, lifeless beans. Maybe the oldest ones had been there for two weeks?

Lesson learned. Those not-so-fresh beans are headed for the compost.
