For September we’re featuring beans…..another thing that I failed at growing in my garden this summer. I got quite an education in gardening this year. Although I’m disappointed with my crop, I am confident that next year will be epic! My bean lesson is this: Do not plant nasturtiums in with your beans. They WILL attract aphids away from the rest of your garden, but the aphids will also eat your beans. #beanfail I’m always accepting gardening advice if anyone would like to share with me their secrets on growing a massive crop of beans in raised beds.
Anyway, all sorts of beans are popping up around my farmers market. Last week I bought a variety pack of green, purple and yellow ones and plan to cook up some seasonal goodness over the next few days. I can’t wait to see what everyone else is making with these seasonal beauties. Head on over to our SEPTEMBER page and link up your BEAN recipes!
