My best dream and worst nightmare have come true: the garden is now overflowing.
It’s great because we have plenty of fresh vegetables, from our own yard, whenever we want.
But it’s also a bit overwhelming when, on Tuesday, I picked about 8 cups of green beans from just one row of our plants. And we have 3 more rows.
Guess I’ll be learning to can beans soon! Or at least freeze them.
Tuesday night’s haul:
8 cups green beans
3 zucchini (and there’s plenty more)
5-6 cups salad greens
5 more radishes
3 ripe figs!
They seem to be ripening just a few at a time, which is fine with me.
So the big question is: what’s your favorite way to eat figs? This week was the first time I’d ever had a fresh one and I’m excited to have more.
