Harvest Time

Ok this post has nothing what so ever to do with sewing but I was so excited this morning I had to post about it.
Back on 26th April after my Bella Bag post I showed you a photo of my runner bean seedlings. They had just sprouted in pots. Well I planted  them out into the garden and they grew and grew until finally I had my first crop three days ago. Every morning I find more to pick. I also planted cucumbers and for some reason they decided to flower like crazy but produced no cucumbers. Well this morning I found one ready for picking and four others hiding in the foliage which should be ready in a couple of days.

Ok, I know it's not exactly enough to be self sufficient but it's a fun hobby when I'm not sewing and I can tell you there's no better taste than beans picked from your own garden that have not been sprayed with anything artificial.

  1. Just stopping by to say Hi!... from Find a Friend Friday at Sew Many Ways.

    Garden fresh (no matter what size the garden) always tastes the best. Enjoy!

  2. Gotta start somewhere. You've got more of a garden than I have this year. Normally we have 3-4 clay pots of tomatoes with some peppers and some other veggie but David didn't want to mess with it this year at the new house but he's got a spot picked out for real garden. Small and no pots. I miss my home grown tomatoes.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. How wonderful! I'm trying to get a garden growing too, I haven't been able to harvest anything yet though :(
