My garden!

I'm finally able to actually get something from my garden. I've had basil & different herbs for sometime but due to all the rain & cool temps everything (except lettuces) was kind of slow. Anyway, it was worth the wait. I fixed a wonderful green bean salad out of the current issue of Country Home & it was yummy. My Mom always fixed her green beans with bacon grease & a ton of salt. She'd put them on the stove & let them cook for hours until they were almost mush. I always loved her green beans. The way I cook them now, they almost taste like a different vegetable.

Oh Jan,
It is a good thing Mark and I are on vacation or you would be needing some extra chairs at your table this week. Those gbs look delicious and I know what a wonderful cook you are. I hope the stain on your back porch is dry by now. Have a lovely week ~ my recent purchases from Leolas look great in my house ~ Love all of you gals!!! Blessings, Katie

I just found your Leola's website. I loved your photo gallery. Your shop looks great!! I visit the KC area about once a year and hope to check you out! As a small shop owner myself I love finding other shop blogs for inspiration.
