Fresh Vegetables!

These are our first Snap Beans picked from the raised bed garden. We have only a few plants grown in the square foot gardening style, and this is our first "mess" of beans for this summer. We only picked the ones that were big enough, so there are already more that will need picking this week. There are also more beans that were planted in successive plantings in another bed, so there will be beans to eat over a period of time.

I enjoy having just enough vegetables in the garden to eat fresh all along during the summer.

We had a wonderful "fresh vegetables" meal yesterday and it was so good! Here is what the menu looked like:

Snap beans cooked with ham bits
Cabbage cooked with ham bits
Squash Casserole
Cucumbers peeled and sliced, in vinegar
BBQed pork chops
Zucchini Bread

Yum, Yum, get you some!
