More Beans...

This spring, our family had the wonderful opportunity to move on to the farm where my wife Karen grew up. We planted a large garden and built a fence to keep the deer out. We had a few really dry weeks, so we pumped water from the pond to irrigate. The garden has been doing well. This week we began picking green beans. To date, we have picked about 12 - 5 gallon buckets. Most of them have been canned or frozen for use throughout the rest of the year.

One of our other projects on the farm was to set up a small Farm Stand. A table and canopy got us started. And more recently we were able to set up a small shed which will give us the option to add a refrigerator…so we can sell milk:) Gotta make milk available.

The Green Beans listed below on the A La Carte menu will be from our garden! I hope to give you more updates on the farm in the future.

FYI - this week we are bringing some lambs to the farm. Who would like to see pastured lamb on the menu in the future??
