OH, BUT THERE is a sunny side, not that we couldn’t use a little rain. But just as the sun was setting, I went out for a last stroll through the garden and found, to my great delight, a tiny bean in the midst of some lovely lavender bean blossoms. The variety is Provider, a bush bean known for being early, productive and tasty. It’s planted in a 12-foot double row and is bringing the first green beans of the season. Beside it, another double row, is coming along about a month behind. You know what that means if you live in the country. It’s almost green-bean-and-new-potato time. Yes, there are also potatoes, just now coming into bloom. They’re a little behind the beans, but I made a pact with Pat that when my first beans come in, I’ll shuttle them over to her house where she’ll be digging her first new potatoes. And we’ll eat like kings. See that’s what all this gardening stuff is about. Sure, it gets you out into the beautiful outdoors. It gives you exercise, and a tan. But it’s really a foodie thing. And a foodie I am. You’re going to hear more about this. You probably knew that already.
