Pinto Beans

This year I tried to grow pinto beans. I bought a 1/2 pound of seed and planted them next to my green and yellow bush beans in a brand new garden space. We did do some battles with grass infestation but when it was all said and done, I yielded a half bushel of unshelled beans.

The shelling process was tedious. John remarked "Don't they have combines to do this?" Actual yield was about 12 cups of pinto beans.

I shared these beans with my CSA members along with a refried beans recipe...much better than ANYTHING in a can!
