Green Bean Harvest

Yesterday we harvested the first green beans of the season. Three plants, each about one month old and 18-inches tall, produced all of these pods. Yum.

  1. Yeah! It's such a great feeling to eat the food you've grown yourself - congrats!

  2. Oh yummy. What else do you have besides beans? My second crop of beans failed-bad seed I think and then it was too late. But I do have squash.

  3. We're growing radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and dill. During the next rainy cold front, we'll put out our spinach seed. I wanted to grow carrots too but the seed didn't come up. I'll have to try again. BTW, I saw this receipe for green beans and basil/pesto yesterday. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/14/health/nutrition/14recipehealth.html?ref=health Perfect timining since we pulled up our basil and made pesto about a week ago.

  4. Those look amazing! Next year, will you post a guide on when to plant different types of vegetables? I would like to be able to harvest more than just tomatoes from my little garden next year! :)

  5. Good idea . There's not much to photograph when I plant new veggies so I always forget to mention what I'm up to, but I need to do a better job documenting the plant dates so I can see trends and patterns across the seasons. And if someone else I'd interested, it will be easier to stay committed.
