Mom had beans ready for the picking when we arrived at The Ponds, so we got to help her pick and eat them.
Not being a gardener at all myself (though my fantasies about someday are amazing every. single. year.), I was amused to see that what they say is true--get the kids working in the garden and they instantly become more veggie friendly. These kids were tossing back raw beans and snap peas like nobody's business!
...and a pepper!
I don't think I've had fresh-picked, steamed green beans for dinner since I was in my teens on the farm. Mmmm... nothing quite like them.
