Lima Beans

Here are our first Lima Beans from the garden.

Considering that we are living on lava and need to grow everything in raised beds, the earth has been very generous. We only planted 4 lima beans. All four seeds germinated and are now heavy with pods. We will save some of the seed and replant again soon.

Our black eyed peas were also very prolific. We planted only 8 seeds and harvested a 16oz container of beans. We will replant some of the seeds and eat the rest as part of our traditional New Years meal of Black Eyed Peas.

Peace, Paul
