This Morning in the Garden

This morning Louise and I went out the garden, after having been away all weekend, and found these lovely treasures. Quite a harvest for a Monday morning. The beans are a type of heirloom, but I can't remember the name. It was a huge surprise to see this many of them ready to pick as I figured the neighborhood bunnies had eaten their more-than-fair share. The cuke is an English style beauty, the long skinny type that costs triple the regular priced cukes at the grocery store. Can't wait to cut into it!
My from-seed zinnias are finally starting to bloom. There's a beautiful lime green zinnia next to this one, ready to pop tomorrow. Aren't zinnias amazing?

What's in your harvest basket? Any flowers inspiring you in your garden? Leave a comment here and I'll link to your garden beauties! A virtual garden tour.

Hi Jenn - This is a newcomer to your blog, steered here by your husband, whom I met this weekend while learning to build things out of stone at the Round River Farm.
He told me about your artisan bread discovery and now, after looking through the blog, I'm eager to try it out.
My wife and I would love to follow your lead and find an old farm out in the country somewhere. Maybe we'll just watch your progress through the blog for some vicarious adventure.
Good luck and I look forward to more great blog posts,
Matt McKinney
