Time to harvest the first green beans from Roadtirement’s garden!
The first round of green beans were finally ready to be picked. We had watched the plants sprout from seed. We kept track as the plants grew and the little yellow flowers bloomed. And then one day Yes! There they were! The first of the cute little bean pods emerged from the plants! We checked each day, sometimes twice a day. As the pods grew in size we knew this day was coming: (Drum roll) Time to pick!
OK, that’s overly dramatic. It was, however, gratifying to get a colander full of our own green beans. From the way the plants look, we will be able to harvest again soon.
