Haricot Verts

Once the valley fog burned off on Monday, we got a sunny day. We jumped at the chance to harvest the green beans. They were a perfect size and beautifully straight, so Ed ran them through our crank machine to make them "French cut" and I processed them for the freezer. You might think we would have had beans for dinner, but we did not. I had other plans.

I used garlic, basil, zucchini, summer squash and parsley from the garden to make pesto, sauteed squash and garlic bread for dinner. The garden makes for incredible meals here.

The sunshine continues today. Everything in the garden seems to welcome the light and warmth. Even the watermelon vines have blossoms!
