Mmm, beans

I was prepared to let my bean plants die off while I was gone for the summer, but someone graciously offered to babysit them. When they came back a few days ago, there were beans on them! Six beans isn't exactly a feast, but they are home-grown and organic and oh-so-tasty. One day, when I have a more suitable yard, I hope to plant some things in the actual ground and reap a higher yield.

I've planted some more spinach seeds, with the hope that the cooler temperatures will produce something that looks hardier than grass. However, I might have washed all of the seeds out of the soil today with over-aggressive watering. Whatever happens will be a surprise...

Yummy! They look so crispy. The kind we grew were so hairy, if you threw them at AJ (which I would do for fun) they would stick to his clothes like velcro. The hair was so strange, I couldn't eat them.

I have zuccini and oakra in my yard these days.I had spinach in winters. I really enjoy fresh vegetables from the yard. It is a very fulfilling experience. Somehow they also taste good. Good luck with spinach!
