Today's share is the same as Monday's, except it also contains the first beans of the season and a sampling of one or two of the first cherry tomatoes. The beans look huge in this close up, but really they're small and supposed to be that way. The variety is a new one for me, Slenderette from Seeds from Italy. It looks like it might be a productive variety. I trialed direct seeding next to transplanted beans and the transplanted so far have produced more than twice as much, and they are much more even in their ripeness. 

Fall and winter plantings continue. I've been doing a little work every day this week to get chicories and brassicas in the ground. Today a bit of lettuce and cilantro went in, both for late summer harvests.
