I’m so happy about these beans.

These are the first dozen green beans from our garden. I don’t know why, but you just don’t get green beans in the shops here, and I hadn’t realised how much I missed them until I saw these little beauties curling out of the flowers on the bean plants.

Following the instructions I’ve seen that you should pick your beans pretty hard in order to get them producing more, I pounced today and picked out the biggest 12 I could find. I ate one raw while I was cooking, and threw the rest in our dinner for a short while, so they were still a little bit crunchy. Adults and toddler alike agreed that they were very good.

These were from seeds sent to me by my Mum in NZ. They’ve grown very happily here so far and there are signs of many many more beans to come. Hurrah!
