Yesterday my nieces and I picked some green beans out of the garden for dinner. My 3 1/2 year old niece, Krista, helped me plant the seeds. She had alot of fun picking the beans. "I found one" she would yell and rip it off the vine. I thought for sure she was going to pull the whole bean stalk up. Krista loves to garden with me. Every time she comes over she asks "can we go to the garden?". She likes watching the tomatoes grow. "Amy look at your maters" she says. Next week I think I'll have her help me dig up some potatoes. I cooked the beans for about an hour with some white onions, salt and pepper. I usually through in a slice of bacon, but didn't have any. They were yummy!
