Roll that beautiful bean footage…

We have a feeling we’re on the edge of a beansplosion with the Chinese red noodle beans. We counted 40+ pods dangling from lightly scented purple flowers that are likely to be ready in just a couple days. But also, yes, we picked the first one yesterday at 14-inches long! We picked the second one just now and it’s even longer by a bit. The plan for this first harvest is a quick stir fry.
