First green beans of the season

First green beans of the season

This morning I picked a big bowl full of green beans, the first to mature this season. Planted May 21, these are a Blue Lake bush variety that looks awfully similar to the Italian green beans we like so much. They are flat-ish and full of meaty flavor. Just picked off the plant, they are sweet and juicy, perfectly fine raw.

Since going off starchy carbohydrates I’ve planted lots more green vegetables this year. This particular batch of green beans we’ll be cooking for a client’s small dinner party tonight. But my foraging in the garden reveals there are many more beans where these came from.
