No Mischief Monday

The 'not buying anything' 1 square foot of beans continues to thrive. First there were flowers, and now - bean pods!

Sure we threw the handful of kidney beans from the kitchen into the soil late, and will be fortunate to harvest any dried beans. Although, here on the coast the growing season is long.

Still, I am having as much fun as my grade four students used to growing beans for science experiments. Like them, I marvel at the miracle, and beauty of life. In one square foot.

Weather means more when you have a garden. There's nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans.
