salad days

Bean flowers:

Bean fruit:

Bean salad!

I picked the first French filet beans a few days ago,
immediately made a huge bowl of three-bean salad,
and have been eating it twice daily ever since.

You'd think I'd be getting tired of it by now, but no.
I'm just trying not to run out before I can make the next batch.

Last night I had intended to go down to the garden after chores
and fill another basket with beans:
one bean for each goat, all the rest for me.
But just as I was collecting empty grain pans and distributing peanuts,
thunder began to roll and lightening flashed quite nearby.
So I hastened to cover the hay and get Piper, Moxie and Della into the house.
No bean-picking last night.

Maybe tonight though.
Oh I think so.

Three-bean salad: breakfast of champions!
