Larry picked the first of our "green" beans on my birthday and we had one of our favorite things for dinner: green beans and new potatoes.
These beans are called Royal Burgundy and they are my favorite bush bean. They are hardy, attract fewer bugs, and produce early and abundantly.
They can beautifully too, with a flavor resembling Blue Lake beans. And the flower? Deep purple, of course! I don't have photos of the flowers to share, so you'll have to take my word for that.
Here are the beans in the jars before boiling water is added,
How cool is that?
