|New haricots verts and the promise of more|
Yesterday I picked my first batch of the second wave of haricots verts. I’m so excited! Slim little things hanging in clusters off a small patch of French green beans that I planted about six weeks ago in a spot that earlier in the season had held leeks.

Three weeks of no rain here rather too me by surprise. I had gotten out of the habit of watering. But several days ago – after Erica’s mention of having to get out the watering can, in fact – I filled a couple of five gallon buckets from the rain barrels by the shed and watered the haricots verts and the Calypso beans in the bed that earlier had held the hardneck garlic, which came out in early July.
