We've been harvesting different things out of garden for a couple of weeks now, green beans being at the top of the list. I'm getting on average about one and a half meals worth every day. That means we've been eating a lot of fresh beans (amazing!) and putting a lot in the freezer. I think we might have enough to last us a good half a year by the end of the season but we'll see. Travis has plans to put in a few more bean plants next year so I may have to learn to can them yet.

this particular haul was after we were gone camping for a mere 5 days
Travis has really been looking into doing some cold frames (seriously go check this guys' blog out) this coming spring so we're moving the shed that houses his bike, lawn mower, and gardening tools so we can get some more garden space without losing anymore lawn. I have a feeling it won't be more than a couple of years before our backyard is mostly garden and very little lawn but I won't be complaining.
Our onions are all ready too and I'm picking a few zucchini's here and there too. The potatoes should be ready to come out pretty soon too I'd think.
Well there's my garden update, I swear I'll get back to some sewing posts soon but really the garden and stuff is what I've been busy with lately so there you go.
