Beans, Basil, and Jam Jars
Bush beans were ready for a first picking. We love green bean soup ( which absolutely needs Summer Savory to taste right). So that was our supper last night. Soup and fresh bread is my idea of a perfect supper.
I grew a good crop of Basil on the sunroom windowsill. I pick off leaves for my salads or on sliced tomatoes but there's no way I can keep up with the production. My son came up with his colander to trim my plants and make pesto ( which, surprisingly, I don't care for).
The pole beans are finally growing well after a slow start. These Scarlet runners are a big attraction for the Hummingbirds.
Ellabie commented on my jam jars which are empty Bonne Maman jars which I've picked up at the thrift store. The red-checkered lids are so attractive. I was in the Dollar store yesterday and saw these smaller ( 200ml) jars. Don't you just love Dollar stores?
I noticed that Jeri Landers at Hopalong Hollow has a fairly recent video that I had missed. She featured Tasha Tudor, in case you're interested.
As usual, thanks for popping by. G.M.
