The weather was beautiful this weekend. I spent both afternoons working outside in our bigger garden. It had been months since I did anything to it. You can see all the healthy weeds.
First, I harvested the black beans. They are very important for us because we don't eat meat or fish at home. I cut the plants and left the roots in the ground. (The nitrogen attached to the roots of the beans will help the next crop grow.) I will hang these beans on our fence to dry. They will last us a year and we can plant the extra to grow more.
|Forget the sports car, I just wish my legs would fit into a k-truck.|
|The first one!|

It felt really nice to be outside. I saw a lot of really cool bugs in the dirt, too. There is a lot of life beneath our feet.
What should I make with all these vegetables?
