I don't know how I missed them. I glanced at them every day as I passed by. It was only because I was looking for a zucchini that might be hiding under the huge plant leaves, that I happened to spot them nearby. No, not bugs or critters. Beans! Nearly two pounds of them, and they were big and fat and at their prime. If I had waited even a day or two longer, they'd have become too old and tough for my liking. I really wasn't expecting them this early, what with the cool weather we've been having. It seems like just last week they were only beginning to blossom!
Provider bush beans. We'll be having them for dinner tonight, along with a crockpot meatloaf, freshly dug new potatoes with fresh snipped parsley or chives (probably chives mixed with light sour cream and butter), and....*tada*.....carrots! I finally pulled enough nice carrots for a big meal of them! I'll also make coleslaw from a young cabbage and some sweet onion from the garden. Maybe I'll pick a sweet green pepper to go with it. I baked a rhubarb pie yesterday, from fresh cut garden rhubarb. I didn't even try to make it lighter and healthier, other than making an oil pastry instead of using Crisco. Oh dear, a feast today means we might have to fast tomorrow!
