Dave-next-door came round earlier & said, "You know, those purple beans you gave us this week - well they were gorgeous! So sweet!"
Which they are actually, & tender even when pretty hefty in size. They aren't my favourite dried bean - flat & brown & a bit boring - but delicious fresh, & I think they'll earn a place on the plot next year.
It's been a pretty good evening, actually - I had a text from Cheery Brian & Pauline earlier saying that as they were off to the wedding tomorrow, & so would I like to help myself to the raspberries?
Well, I don't need asking twice, so I'll be taking a punnet to the Hill tomorrow for filling!
And tonight I've opened a bottle of April's rhubarb wine, & very tasty it is too. I mentioned that I was going to open it to colleague Rita, & she said, "You told me I had to wait until Christmas to open my bottle!"
Ahh, did I? Oops!
