Today I received a surprise in the mail. Yes as you can see it is a bag of beans -Pinto beans that is. They have made the journey all the way from Colorado. Linda, proprietor of the blog "Life on a Colorado Farm" is a farmer's wife (and oh so much more) graciously offered to send me some. These beans are one of the main products from their farm. As we all know a farmer works from sun up till sun down and that also includes the farmer's wife! Thank you so much Linda it was so nice to receive a package on this dark and dreary day here in Maine. Now it's time to dust the bean pot off!
