What are we picking? It’s a green harvest!

With a ton of red picking with our tomatoes, it’s time to show some love to the green veggies.

We’re picking tomatoes like wild people but we’re also picking a ton of other vegetables.  Right now there’s tomatillos, peppers (jalapeno and bell), soy beans, green beans, yellow beans, watermelon, cantaloupes, cucumbers, radishes and carrots growing.  As soon as the soybeans are picked, broccoli will make it’s way to their bins.  Once the carrots and radishes are harvested, a quick seed refresh will be planted to hope we can get them regrown by first frost. In our previous onion 4×4 containers a new batch of sugar snap peas were just planted in hopes they will make it before frost as well, although every year they seem to miss it by a week or two.

What’s growing and what are we picking in the garden that’s green? Let’s dive in.

Beans! Yellow beans, green beans, they’re everywhere!  In the beginning years of the garden we didn’t have much luck with pole and bush beans but starting last year we tried it again and it worked. This year we decided to expand to pole beans and they are growing awesome.  We added new fresh compost fertilizer to the soil and these beans took off.  Matthew is 6 feet so check out how big they’ve gotten.  The right side won with getting to the top first. :D)

We have multiple gallon sized bags full of green beans in the fridge with us picking more every day.  We’ve been enjoying them for dinner sauteed and in vegetable soup (recipe coming soon) and I’ve been freezing a few bags to save until Winter.
