In my hand this week was a colander. It lives on the retaining wall of my veggie patch.
I planted purple climbing beans next to the cubby house after the sweet peas had finished.
It's been such a long, hot season. I squeezed a crop of purple climbing beans right at the end.
I made a bean salad with what I picked. The weird thing is when they are cooked, the purple beans turn green.
A salad that is fondly remembered from my childhood. Mum said she got it from an Italian friend Alina. It involves garlic, vinegar and olive oil.
I am getting a few tomatoes here and there as well. The weather has finally turned in the last week. I think Autumn is working it's way in and those lovely warm days are starting to become less and less. I am sad, I hate the cold. My capsicums have just decided to spring into action too. I hope there is enough warmth to see them to maturity.
I do not care how much it rains, I do not like the coldness in the breeze of the last week. I do not like it at all!
