So the green beans are coming at a “you better pick these daily” rate at this point. So we’re having them with either lunch or dinner everyday! I couldn’t be happier…I think green beans are one of the best garden investments in terms of seed cost and green bean yield…you get a TON from a $1.50 packet!
The kids love the green beans too…either one or both of the boys will ask for more…and I will tell him to go out and pick some more and I will cook them! I truly believe that one of the reasons they love “their” green beans is because they are “their” green beans. They planted the seeds. They watched them grow. And now they get to eat them up!
So you all might already be doing this, but I just started by accident. I would snap the stem off and pull out the string, almost unconsciously, as I was looking for other beans to pick. As soon as I noticed myself doing it, I made it a point to always snap the green bean stems off, pull out the string and drop them back into the garden!
Snap as you pick!!!
That’s my green bean trick for today…and remember…it’s all about green beans on Saturday’s Grow. Eat. $ave!
