going out for breakfast

One of the finest things about gardening is being able to step outside,
gratefully harvest something you have planted and nurtured and watched grow,
and have an organic meal on your plate an hour later.

This morning, it was more like 15 minutes.

The French pole beans are producing so well this year,
there are already a couple of pounds in the freezer.
Imagine how delicious they may be, when the garden is covered with snow.

I also pick a meals-worth of beans for non-gardening friends
who will be able to prepare and eat them right away, at their very best.

That is another of the finest things about gardening - 
being able to share something special with special people.

Come on by.
