Handful of Blueberries and Purple Beans

Plenty of runner beans and raspberries still coming from the garden.  These have been cooked and made into various dishes.  Most recently the Runner Beans were cooked in a Sri Lankan Runner Bean Pie and the raspberries in Chocolate  Brownies

The other berry fruit harvested from my garden are these blueberries,  barely a handful but lovely.
I also harvested some purple beans aka Blauhilde. These turn green upon cooking. 
I am sharing this small harvest with Daphne Dandelions for Harvest Monday.

  3. The runner bean pie sounds like a great idea. Good way to use up beans and turn them into a main dish

  5. Those blueberries look mighty good to me. My motto is always any "X" is better than no "X" when it comes to homegrown produce.

  6. Those berries look so nice. I recently bought some along with raspberries and strawberries to snack on and turn into smoothies.

  8. I wish I had gotten a handful of blueberries this year, but the birds got to them all before I did.

    1. :) Your issue has been birds, mine slugs. Hopefully next year we will both get our fair share.

  9. Shaheen,
    Was it a coincidence that you had on the 'right colour' sweater? :)
