Not bad for our first real season at the Militant Community Garden.
Each week we have a new little harvest! It's very exciting.
I have no annoying emails to share with you this week from the nitwits at the Militant Community Garden, it's been very quiet, except for Sunday morning's incident.
A woman with a big floppy hat came up to me and said that "I was too sexy to be gardening" and "could I dress differently so her husband wouldn't gawk". I stood there in amazement, then realized I think she was being cute. Still not sure.
Next week I am showing up in a bikini.
Back to the harvest:
This week we harvested bush beans!
I have enough beans to harvest for the next few weeks, so you will be seeing some green bean recipes here.
Here's how I prepared the beans:
I boiled the beans for 5 minutes and sauteed them with some of the gorgeous homemade pancetta from Ben at Mossuto's Market.
Tossed them with a tablespoon of butter to finish them and salt and pepper.
Served with some garlic bread and fresh mozzarella.
Happy days of summer.
Proper Attire Required.
