Peas and Beans

After I harvested the last of the green beans earlier this summer, they started to lose their leaves. I figured it would be like the peas, which died off very quickly after I harvested them, but I kept watering anyway. Well, the beans grew another set of leaves, small and toward the base of the stems. Then they bloomed again, and now they've produced another couple servings of beans!

My second crop of peas isn't working out so well, though. The weather has turned distinctly cooler, which is unusual for September. They have bloomed and there are a few pods growing, but I can also see that the plants are already starting to die off, the leaves toward the bases starting to go brown and shrivel up. We'll see whether I get any actual peas out of this.
