Gentle(wo)man farmer

If I had to depend on growing beans to make a living, surely I would perish with today’s bounty! I planted these some time ago and if Gina hadn’t pointed them out today, they would have shriveled unnoticed on the vine. With all the rain we’ve gotten, the garden is growing by leaps and bounds and it looks like the set of the movie Jumanji out there. I picked this meager harvest and Michael added them to the “everything but the kitchen sink” soup he made for my sister Debbie and me this evening. It may only have been 11 bean pods (aren’t they pretty?), but I was proud of my contribution to the table nonetheless.
