Sunday stuff

The purple Guatemalan fava beans seem to have ripened; their pods aren't as long as the ones in the farmers' markets, but upon opening one, I found the beans seemed full and ready to harvest. We got a handful to put into a pasta dish. Only thing purple with them were their flowers. Yellow wax beans and our own basil went into the main course, and an heirloom tomato, a "Black Russian", rounded out the salad. All of us were properly exercised, and content by evening's end.

Sounds like a delicious meal at the end of a good day.

SOUNDS exotic,kathyr, but they weren't remarkable-looking; tasted great, though. A friend gave me four beans to try out, and two of them germinated, producing multi-branched plants.

Yes, it was, robin a.
