white half runner beans
What could be better than getting your food at the local farmer's market. That's what we did Saturday. We found tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, garlic, romaine lettuce, red Swiss chard, and more. We also found out we can visit some of the local farms to see how they grow their produce.
The beans above are white half runner beans; a favorite of the Southern mountains. I spent some time snapping and peeling the strings from the beans. Later I sauteed some onion, garlic, and red peppers, then I added the beans and about a cup of water and cooked them till they were soft but mot mushy. Here are a few more items we got at the farmer's market.
apricots and peaches
tomatoes and white paddy pan squash
It takes time to string beans and that's when conversations transpire. Gary and I sat at the kitchen table while I was stringing the beans and he was looking at the computer but much of the time we were talking about this and that. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
