It stands to reason that the first zucchini would be ready right as we're getting ready to leave. I'll have to do some quick baking or freezing - or just throw it in my carry-on!
I was surprised to see that the first pods of Bingo beans were totally dry and ready for harvest. They're very orderly - most ripe at the bottom, least ripe at the top. They seem to have come out beautifully and the plants are loaded. I hope we like their flavor. Of course, it would be pretty easy to disguise the flavor in soup anyway. Dry beans are sure an easy way to grow some protein in your garden.
