bean gathering

This summer we are growing green beans, cherry tomatoes, and basil in pots on the deck to supplement our CSA delivery each week. The boys have had a lot of fun planting the seeds, watering the sprouts, watching daily for growth, watering the plants, checking for ripeness, and oh, did I mention, watering? We have been nibbling at the tomatoes (red and green) for weeks, but finally the day arrived when this mama said we could pick some beans for dinner. Owen ran over and said, "I do it!" and did a very fine job filling his bowl. Thanks, sweetie, they are delicious!
