This weekend, a dream of mine finally came true. To my husband's great dismay, I am the owner of a hard workin' little garden gnome. I have named him David Tiberius Frack - Frack being the only hint I'll give you as its my last name. :)
I think he has already brought a great deal of luck to the garden, as I came home today to find 80 fresh little green beans ready for the pickin'! Its the first true harvest from the garden, and I couldn't be more proud. I have successfully grown something edible. While my strawberries may fail, my onions may fail, my potatoes may fail - its pretty safe to say I grew me some beans. 80 to be exact, and many more on the vine not ready for harvesting.
A few are slated for some home made chicken pot pie tomorrow. Must find some good green bean recipes. Anyone have some? :)
