Seeing Purple


The Royal Purple bush beans have been in flower and just starting to show their pods.  I'm loving all that purple in the garden. Looks like a good harvest coming my way ;-)

Fading like a flower

On the brighter side...The slicers in the greenhouse are Rock stars!!!

I 'll just have to keep an eye on them and see what I end up with.
