|Baby lima beans|
One’s goal in flower gardening is to create something beautiful– and not just visually beautiful. A perfect flower garden will appeal to one’s sense of smell and touch, too.
Flower gardens can be nearly perfect. The same cannot be said of vegetable gardens. There is always something wrong in the vegetable garden, and frequently there is something really wrong.
What’s really wrong here is that I planted the lima beans way too late in the season. Most of the pile on the table still have beans in them– beans about the size of a pencil eraser.
What’s beautiful is that I figured I might get some late season limas. And I did. The clear bowl has fresh beans. The blue bowl has beans from dried pods.
Take that! Big Life.
