going green (and purple)...

...in the garden that is! Here are a few snapshots of what's growing right now...a wonderful mix of greens and purples. Here is our first little bunch of potatoes. The rest of the plants are not ready to harvest yet. These are called Purple Viking.
Next up, some zucchini, green onion, and dragon tongue beans.These dragon tongue beans are not only fun to look at with their purple designs, but they are delicious! You can eat them any way you would eat a green bean. Our favorite is sauteed in a pan with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. We've also enjoyed lots of fresh spinach this summer. Our plants went to seed not long ago so we've pulled them and planted a few more for a fall crop. We've learned a lot more this year about what works for us and what doesn't. I have more to show from the greenhouse (think yellow and orange this time:)

Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoy your Monday. I'm home with a fussy baby who has a slight fever and a runny nose. Trying to clean house, but mostly snuggling with the little one!
