Garden Update! Harvesting Purple Beans.

I was poking around looking in my bean pole and I could see the beginnings of some purple beans. Then as I looked closer I found these huge ones. They blended right in with the stems of the plants so I hadn't seen them before. As you can see, a few of them measured up to 8 inches long. I steamed some last night for dinner and they taste wonderful, however the longer you cook them the more green they turn. I made a wheat pasta dish with leftover pesto and steamed yellow squash from the Farmer's Market and my beans.
