Cherokee Trail of Tears beans

Yesterday I harvested about a third of the beans. Some I just didn't get to, some aren't ready. But what a lovely sight, all those glossy black beans. My chili is going to be awesome this fall.

West Fence Bed and Randoms

It's amazing what a few years growth can do

Rosehips! I have 9 bushes equally laden.
From the veggie garden, we have homegrown cukes and dill.
Which, of course, means pickles! Plus some beans that I flash-steamed for freezing.
Orange and purple carrots similarly steamed. I'm in love with these Purple Haze carrots.
Remember a few weeks ago when I made my first batch of dilly beans? We cracked open our first jar and they were PERFECT! I'm so happy! We finished the jar within two days. The liquid was so pretty I ended up saving it for the next time I make brined chicken.
