Green Beans Out, Purple Hulls In

A couple of weeks ago I decided to cut my green beans out of my garden to replace them with purple hull peas.  The heat ended the green bean production so it was an easy choice.  The timing on this works out great.  The purple hull peas do well in the warmer weather so I hope to get a decent crop.  My green beans were the Derby variety and yielded over 40 pounds out of two 5 x10 areas.  We ate a lot of them, but also canned a bunch.  Here are a few shots.
