One of the things I always look forward to in the fall is when the dry beans are finally threshed, sorted, and sufficiently dry to bag. I didn’t grow as many varieties this year as some, but still had a number of them and it was fun to pour the colourful beans into their separate bags. Anyway, one of the things to look for at the market this week is the new crop of dry beans.

There will also be several kinds of fall greens: bok choy, chard, collards, and kale. This is the first harvest from most of the plants and it was rainy last week, so the greens are exceptionally tender.

I will also have lots of squash again this week of various varieties, big and small. — Sydney
