This Week's Share--Shelling Beans and Melons

I love beans, all kinds of beans--so this week you will have your pick of green beans (a slightly smaller quantity), more edamame beans (the edible soybeans), and the beginning of a couple of weeks of different types of shelling beans. We will begin with the Cranberry or Horticultural Bean -- click here for a nice blog posting on crandberry beans from the Streaming Gourmet. For more info on shelling beans in general read this article from the San Francisco Chronicle. Good for you and good for the soil, enjoy your beans.

This week's share includes:
Green Beans
Edamame Beans (certain varieties also known as butterbeans)
Shelling Beans--cranberry/horticultural beans
Summer Squash
Melons--mainly watermelon and a few cantaloupe
Sweet Peppers
Hot Peppers
