It was bean picking day today and I found this tiny jumping spider when I was halfway down the patch.  Not as sharp as I would like but I didn't have any lights with me in the bean patch.  It was a short row and we ended up with 7 quarts canned as well as a good mess of them cooked up today and another last week.  I like the Roma bean variety, they are a wide Italian type of bean that you can get in the pole or bush variety.  Here is a link to Rareseeds, though Roma seems to not be all that uncommon around here in the farm supply stores.
