Getting the goods, or…


…harvesting the first VEGGIES!!

Katie came over yesterday with Ella, her little niece.  They picked a few weeds and then they discovered that the beans were ripe for the picking. Don’t they look amazing?  Hehe and the basil looks like it wants to be picked as well.  The peppers are still growing nicely, the onions look small. I am talking about those things that stick up from the ground that look like chives, they look a little small to me. But what do I know?

Ok, question for you all, how long will the beans produce?  Is this handful all there is on those small plants?

So this was a nice end to a fun afternoon.  Katie came over around 6:30 – I had just come home from a Chamber function on the Sand Dunes Boat.

Yes there was wine and beer and good food involved there too.  Gluttony (is that how it’s spelled?)

  1. I have noticed my bean plants keep producing! Not as much as the first picking, but there are still beans to be had! Yippee!!

    • that is great. Then we will know how many we should plant and how many more boxes Mike needs to build next year. Katie pickles everything. She pickled some asparagus that I got with my CSA a few weeks ago, I think she’ll pickle these beans. Maybe the pickled beans can be used to stir Martinis?

  2. Um. I have no comment on that. I love to eat my beans raw! 🙂

    Also, cook them with a little tomato sauce, some bacon, yummy.

    No need to pickle those little beauties.
