The Dr. Martin lima beans have had a very productive run, but the colder weather and shorter day length has pretty much done them in. Here is a picture of the last picking on October 30th, then shelled on November second.
We have a lot of the beans frozen, as they just kept coming and coming.
Even the large beans are tasty. Dinner was pork chops, lima beans, and butternut squash from the garden. Scrumptious.
A nice way to end the lima season. Does anyone have a recipe for baked beans using fresh or dried lima beans? I would love to give it a try.
