|We steamed this beauty and it's now in the fridge|
I had to pull two enormous slugs off it when I started to peel back the outer leaves. I'm afraid I'm now a murderer, although I stomped them instead of salting them. I figured it's better for them to die fast rather than shrivel up in agony. They may be slugs, but still.

Then I dashed home on the next bus to write this post. I did indeed get a chance to get my knees in the breeze last Sunday and hope for more of the same this coming weekend. The low clouds began to clear around noon, so four of us played in the sky on two separate skydives. Linny had to leave early to make it back to Seattle in time for her job, and Cindy and Dave needed to pack for their trip to the East Coast. That meant I returned home early on Sunday. Without anybody to play with, skydiving can get pretty boring. Those two jumps together, however, were a whole lot of fun.

Black beans are left on the vine until they have dried, so you won’t have that much difficulty figuring out when they are ready to pick. The pods will turn yellow, dry and even split open when the beans are ready. If you bite into one, your teeth shouldn’t make much of a dent in it.They don't need much water, so I'll just keep a watering can out there to make sure they get some water if we continue to have continuous sunshine. They look pretty good but they're all I have left to worry about. I look forward to some black bean soup made with my very own black beans!
