Obligatory Autumn Leaves Picture

It happens every year up here, but I'm still pretty excited. The October shellie beans were a raging success and I'm definitely going to plant more next year.  They cooked up in less than 30 minutes and had wonderful flavor and texture.  The grey color is a little unappetizing, but easily balanced by some fresh tomatoes and basil. There's actually a good number of beans in that bowl, but they got tucked up in the pasta shells.

Above: Austrian Winter Pea coming up in one of my new beds. We'll see how this works as a cover crop/green manure. 

Below: The winter greens, herbs, lettuce, and radishes are coming along nicely, though the spinach is wastefully close together and so far none of the corn salad came up.
