My favorite vegetable, next to garden fresh peas, is green beans. I’ve grown green, yellow, and even purple “green” beans. The purple green beans turn green after they are cooked, by the way. This is disappointing in a temporary tattoo, 45-record cut from the back of a cereal box, Cracker Jack prize, Bazooka bubble gum comic, x-ray vision glasses kind of way.
The above photo is of my first crop of green beans this year. Is this what they mean by a drop in the bucket? It’s enough for two people and that’s all that matters! Now, what to serve with these beauties? How about a farmhouse supper of pork chops, mashed potatoes, steamed green beans, and homemade bread? Nothing balances out the health benefits of fresh green beans like pork and carbs 😀
