From Garden to Table

31. July 2012 03:42

For dinner tonight we had our first green beans from the garden. Instead of the classic Kentucky Wonder or Blue Lake snap beans, I planted a filet variety, Maxibel. I am not sure if the taste was as great as they said.  However, since these beans are a lot thinner than the other kinds, I suspect that the timing given for steaming them was too much and they were overcooked as a result.  If I had paid attention to all the details in the seed catalog description I should not have been surprised at how big the bean plants got -- the description does say the plants are tall.
