GREEN BEANS FROM OUR BACKYARD GARDEN.

A few months back OC & I planted a vegetable garden in the back yard. It's a plot of dirt about 3' x 6' where a bush used to be underneath the guest bedroom window. So far the heartiest of the plants is the Juliet Tomatoes but the first to provide bounty is the green bean plant. The beans actually have a slightly furry feel to them, which I did not know. We are keeping an eye on the tomatoes because there are several of each kind (we planted 3 different types of tomato plants) but they are still green. One of them is orange. We're also getting some yellow pears. It's a lot of fun and I can't wait to eat them. This summer we're going to build a planter for fruit and vegetable plants.
