Beans, Taters and Blueberries
Oh happy day!! While perusing the garden I spied green beans. Some of the Maxibel were ready. We love to steam those and toss with butter and a bit of salt. Also ready are the beginnings of the Venture. These are the beans that should pretty much all be ready at once. The potato vines are beginning to die back so that means new potatoes can be found waiting just beneath the ground. The blue berries are beginning to turn. I will need to harvest as soon as they are ready. Another bad boy rooster has been staring longingly at the bushes. He better mind his manners or he will go the way of his brother that raided the strawberry patch...may he RIP. Some were harvested today but it looks like I will have a very busy weekend picking!
