    Fresh beans! OMG! Beans grown from our garden, really really good! Dh has several varieities in our gardens. He sits on the sofa in these hot afternoons and shells them.

    edited to say: by "fresh" i mean shelled beans, like black eyed beans, a few red beans, some kind of roundish been.

    Funny how, even at the farmer's markets, I rarely see fresh beans beyond soybeans (edamame) or garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas). Even bean sprouts aren't hard to find. But fresh non-canned/dried beans? Not so much. I wonder why that is. Are they particularly fragile or short-lived when fresh?

    I wonder if it is something my neighbor said, which might be a reason. He was having back issues and the green beans in the garden were ready to be picked. The amount grown, verses the cost at the grocery store, didn't warrant a trip to the chiropractor and those costs.

    No actually, they dry nicely and last a long time, but I prefer to cook them when freshly picked. But we will be drying some because they are too much to eat all at once.

    I wonder if there is lack of fresh beans because people will not shell them. You have to spend a fair amount of time preparing a cup of uncooked beans.

    Same with pitting cherries, that takes time.i do not know where to buy fresh sour cherries other than at the UPick places.
