A small harvest
I picked some runner beans Friday evening. Far too early really but there were two that needed picking so I rummaged through the leaves for some others at a nearly reasonable size.
There are plenty more to come - thankfully!
I eked out my pathetic harvest with two asparagus spears. The patch which the asparagus struggled to grow on has been sprinkled with a wild flower mix. So there was no harm in picking the spears this late in the season.
Both boys were out while Mike was making dinner. Duck in orange sauce with dauphinoise potato so Mike and I shared the runner beans between us. The boys weren't left out completely , they had their meal later on accompanied by sliced green beans from the freezer.
