Beautiful and tasty

We grew these for the first time last year. They were the first bean to bear, and as we had scattered multiple plantings of these, we were still picking these beans well past October here in Oregon. These pretty and plentiful yellow beans had all of the rich flavor of a romano, so much so we also froze these in a pasta primavera sauce we made with some of our tomatoes and other veggies. Well worth the space in our small garden and we will plant these again for sure this year.
