Harvesting Limas in the City
So how many urbanites could report picking lima beans last weekend? I mentioned it in a previous post, but felt that pictures were needed to capture such a cool event from our fall. We didn't get too many (for some reason, heat? stinkbugs?) we didn't get any crop until October. Here's the harvest and a picture of the boys in front of the overgrown lima bean teepee in our neighbors' backyard (they offered to let us extend our garden into their yard--we split the booty). Fun times, I still can't believe it! Do you know how much they charge for these in the farmer's market? I figure we grew at least $10 worth, even with most of the season being a flop. Urban gardening . . . gotta love it!
