Garden Greens


 It seems like it's officially summer when we get to bring in a bowlful of veggies every day from the garden.  A little bowl, but a bowlful nonetheless! 

Right now we're enjoying everything green: zucchini, cucumbers, lettuce and green beans. 


 I had forgotten I had planted a bush bean that has yellow pods... when I noticed I had beans, I did a double take when I saw they were yellow (smile).  They're called a Golden Wax Bush Bean and they are so delicious. 


I'm anxious to show you our entire garden and share a little more about the heirloom seeds I planted, but right now it's a sight that just about has me running screaming... since I've been spending every spare minute on our front porch, the garden is showing its neglect in the form of weeds!  (We finished the porch today though... can't wait to show it to you!!)


I snapped this picture yesterday as I was cooking dinner.  I looked over at the kitchen table and both girls were helping with the beans while talking away.  My heart melted! 

Happy Summer to you!

  1. I remember I used to love to sit and trim the green beans and pick them off the plant. They look lovely and your zucchini look amazing. I have a great zucchini recipe for zucchini bread if you nee done. I'm sure you have one though. Let me know.

  6. This is so so special - growing your own food, isn't it!? Gardening is such an honest, rewarding experience and I am happy to see your lovely family " eats the blessed earth" Enjoy the abundance of Summer!

  9. It's wonderful when little children start loving to eat vegetables early on. My little grandson ( almost four ) was over here yesterday and dinner was all vegetables and fruits and he said "YUM, 'CHINNI!" ( for zucchini ) and I think that is a good thing! :)

    Snapping beans is fun as long as you don't let on to the girls that it is actually 'work' :)

  11. Your zucchini and golden beans are so pretty! It's great to see your girls helping (they are more likely to enjoy them, right?;) Simple, fresh cuisine is always scrumptious!

  16. Love the photo of the girls snapping beans. I remember snapping beans with my great-aunt when I was little. We always gave the ends and strings to the chickens for a treat!
    Looking forward to seeing the front porch.
    Happy Monday!
