Dried Beans

This was the first year that we grew dried beans. I picked up some Soldier Beans from a local market and instead of eating them I opted to plant them.
I hung the whole plants to dry in the barn for a couple weeks then…
…Country Boy, my Mom & I took the beans out of the pods.

Next year I’d like to grow a few other varieties.
This whole process makes you look at a bag of dried beans in a different light that is for sure.
In general I find growing your own gives you a deeper appreciation for food and those that prepare it.
On a final note…has anyone watched the documentary “The Future of Food”? If not you really should. Maine Man and I watched it last night. All I am going to say is “Scary!” Let me know if you watch and what you think.
