Today, I’m grateful for green beans from the garden.
I was about to give up on my bean plants this summer. The teepee structure I roped together for them got blown sideways during a recent storm and the plants didn’t seem to want to produce any beans. So, I stopped looking. What a surprise to find them covered with beans when I finally checked again the other day. 🙂
We’ve only got one zucchini plant in the garden, but it’s producing plenty. When we’re eating it everyday, it’s fun to change up the recipes. For fried zucchini, I slice it up, dip the slices in egg, coat them with teff (a whole grain similar to breadcrumbs) to which I’ve added salt & pepper & other spices, then fry in a pan coated with olive oil. Yum!
I’ve tried growing potatoes on & off for years. This year, I’m trying again. It’s pretty easy, but it can be disappointing when blight or potato scab taint the crop. This year, I’m finding a little of both, but I’m still getting edible produce. 🙂
Today, I’m grateful for beets growing in the garden.
The beet greens are getting bigger, but it’s hard to tell how big the beets might be, down in the soil. I’ve heard these greens are great in salads, so I may just have to pick one for the greens, no matter what size the beet below is. Looking forward to it. 🙂
