As busy as we are it's important to take time out and enjoy the little things in life. Living on a farm in Florida for us means spending time in the beautiful outdoors here tending to our garden.
This morning the kids and I headed outside to check on our green beans. This is our first time growing beans and I planted an heirloom variety called Contender Buff Valentine that I bought from Baker Creek Seeds. It's an early producer, meaning you can start munching after about 50 days! That's less than 2 months. I love it. A few days ago while watering I noticed a few beans here and there on the plants so I thought we'd be harvesting soon but not today! We picked a colander full of beans and that was just off a few plants. I think I have like 22 plants of this variety. HA! At this rate I will be canning, freezing and giving some away.
