|Fresh Three Bean Salad ~ (OK, I guess I made it into a Four Bean Salad, but who's counting anyway...) The green/wax beans, red bell peppers & onions were picked fresh from the garden. I followed ~ this recipe ~ & added both kidney & garbanzo beans, so my salad went from being a 3 to a 4 bean salad. The more the merrier, I always say!|
J enjoys coming along some evenings & helps me search for the veggies that are ready to pick.
The Community Garden Corn Field was hard hit by the drought this year, but, we were still able to find a half dozen ears to bring home & enjoy. Lucky for us, our neighbors also have a sweet corn field that was planted later than other local fields & it's producing well, so we will still be able to get local sweet corn. :) (and I mean REALLY local corn ~ I can see the corn field out my back window!) I'll be posting pictures & recipes using their corn soon.
Just a little ~ slice 'o' country life ~ in our semi-rural, Midwestern town. :)
