One harvest in

The first bean planting has been harrowed in.  Five pounds of seed generated over 1000 pounds of yield and a great deal was left behind.  Three more plantings are yet to come.

It will be yellow beans next year.  This year’s variety, Provider, while very productive, was also sufficiently camouflaged to elude inexperienced pickers. 

We never entertained the idea that everything will be picked, but it still is bothersome to see good food go under.
