This summer the two oldest monkeys took over the back garden.
Originally they planted the seedlings that they started school. As luck would have it, the same night the transplanting took place, the sky's unleashed a heavy rain washing away their earliest garden attempts.
New plans took place, replacement seeds were chosen, planted, and mostly cared for. (Trust me, we went small - just some new green bean and carrot seeds.) And now the harvesting takes place.
This morning monkey one and I prepared a pile of fresh green beans for freezing. We followed directions from "green beans and more" at and now have two bags of beans ready for a future meal. I know it isn't much, but if you could see the size of our garden - this isn't too bad. :)
