Mine always seem to lag the first deliveries by a while, but truth be told… I am never out of beans “from before”… I just happily welcome them them when they finally arrive  😋

A member of the bean club shared this video with the Facebook group yesterday.  

She has a heavenly voice and the whole thing is just crazy funny perfection!

Oh blue_dolphin! That made my afternoon. So funny - and as you say she has a lovely voice to top it off. 

I think I’ve watched it at least half a dozen times and it makes me laugh every time!  

When Abby shared this to the Bean Club Facebook group she said, “Every time I've cooked beans for the past two years, I've made up some dumb version of this song. So this year, for my birthday and for RG's 20th anniversary, I went for it. I hope you get a laugh out of it! Thanks, Rancho Gordo, for being such a bright spot!”

I’m totally lacking in the voice dept but I plan to start singing this when I cook beans, too. Thankfully no one to hear me but the cats 🙃

I can't wait to get mine!

 

and Mr Whipple was my first thought ;)  I guess I'm aging myself!

 

I'm relieved that Mr Whipple *wasn't* my first thought. O.o Or my second, which was the Whipple Observatory.

Oooh, I've been to that observatory a couple of times, we used to live not far from there! The road up Mt Hopkins made me quite nervous, it's not very wide at all in spots. The connection between that and beans is that tepary beans are grown in the region near the Observatory. The Tohono O'odham grow them and that's where I used to buy them from, though I see Rancho Gordo also sells them. I wonder where RG purchases from, does anyone know?

Beans ARE gorgeous.    At Ferry Plaza, RG had a big bin of mixed beans for customers to run their finger through. It was like fondling thousands of jewels.  

You took me backto he bean bin in produce section when I was a kid, We'd sneak over and run our hands through. Pintos.
