Picked the first "mess" of green beans for Sunday dinner tomorrow.
future tomato sandwich OR Fried Green Tomato

absolutely beautiful. can you overnight me some green beans?
You must have someone with big muscles to help with all that!! My sheltie loves green beans ~~He'd clean you out! LOL TFS What a joy that garden must be!

Bana, I'd be happy to overnight you some green beans
Muddy - the garden is a joy, and yes, a lot of work too. I get such great satisfaction out of going to my pantry or freezer and pulling out the makings for meal...oh, and eating fresh too! Much better than running up and down those aisles at the grocery store.
Could you train your Sheltie to help me pick all those beans? They'll be ready for canning next week.
much as i'd love them.. i was just kidding. sure wish i lived down the road tho to help you pick and can... just for the fun of it.
That is some garden there!!!
I guess I better get a move on, I haven't planted anything yet except tomatoes.And that was suppose to be DH's project.

Can testify that VE does great green fried tomatoes! YUM, Yum! Good thing no one sees my garden-all weeds.
Wow, what a great garden you have there! I wish I had the space. One day.....
Yep! Great looking garden! I was really late getting my maters out so all I have at this point are some grape tomatoes that are fast getting to ripening stage. I did pull 6 carrots yesterday & picked 2 bell peppers tonight! Pulled an onion last week...one that had sprouted from last year's batch before I used it...I just stuck it in my garden patch about Oct. last year...it was softball size.
Since I just have a small space for now I've got onions, tomatoes, peppers & carrots. Over the winter I will have broccoli & cabbage, lettuce and spinach and more carrots!

YUMMMMMMMM is right! I so envy those of you who are harvesting already. Michigan has been cold last week, then very hot, then cold and rain yesterday and part of today. My beans are just sprouts, tomatoes just sit there, though I have eaten some radishes, rhubarb, and peas are just about ready to pick.....thanks for sharing!
Judge not, you don't know their story.
Its just the very start of June!!! Harvesting?!!!

Oh, Vera, what a magnificent garden!!! I'd help you pick and can those green beans, too, and for only a small stipend!!
Had lunch at my aunt's house today and had a FRESH, HOMEGROWN TOMATO!!!!! It was fabulous.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
FFG and anyone else who wants to come help pick and can! I'd be glad to share!!
I was hoping for ripe tomatoes by July 4th...that's the goal for all the farm gardens around here. We'll see (if I don't fry them all up as green ones first).
Thanks Jan..glad you enjoyed them! You did the frying, I just did the battering.
Wish I had the energy to put in a garden like that. I put in 6 peppers and 6 big tomatoes plus 6 cherry and grape tomatoes. Have some onions to plant and would love to put in some green beans. I have plenty of space. Your garden looks so healthy. Are you an organic gardener.
Simply mouth watering!
Thanks again y'all.
Owie, no, I cannot claim to be an organic gardener. Sevin is my friend, but I am careful not to use it when things start blooming because of the bees. Insects are a real problem down here, so it's hard (for me) to be strictly organic.
That's quite a large planting bed there vera!
MMMM is right, fresh cripsy green beans steamed with a little sea-salt and EVOO or the Southern way, smothered down with potatoes and ham.

That's some veggie garden...I envy all your early harvesting! Do you plant a second or third crop since you start so early?
No second or third crop, although later toward fall we will plant winter greens like turnips, spinach, etc. By summers end I am so tired that the very idea of starting another garden is not in the cards.
Unless we have another drought, the tomatoes & okra will bear until frost....I might replant some squash, but that would be it on second crops.
