butterbeans and bacon

Finally got enough butterbeans at one time to make a little pot of butterbeans and bacon! (You might call them lima beans.)

Most of these are Carolina Sieva, and the few gray ones are Red Calico, both varieties originally from Monticello. I save the seed to plant again the following year. Next year I plan to devote more space to butterbeans and less space to tomatoes.

The bacon is not local, but humanely raised and bought from Deep Roots Market, my locally-owned natural foods co-op.

Home for lunch, taking a few vacation hours before going to class tonight.
