a day in the garden: bean harvest
Yesterday afternoon, my daughter and I harvested our beans,at least some of them. Looks like the rest will be ready today and tomorrow. She's 4 now, and even though she's going through a picky eating stage, she took a bite of a fresh bean - so sweet. She was very excited about picking them, and holding onto them, until there were to many for her small hands! The best part for me is showing her the whole gardening experience, talking about bees and seeing her genuine interest in it all. I hope to foster a love of nature and gardening in her, sharing what I learn with her, all of it. Yes, the fresh organic beans we'll be eating tonight are good, but not nearly as rewarding as the experience with her.
