Backyard garden harvest! Pencil pod black wax beans, zinnias, #maters


An organic garden of one's own sure is worth all that digging and soil amending. Sweet.

Oh, and I have a food article in this week's Free Times! (Columbia, SC's free weekly paper, like a hybrid of the SF Weekly and the SF Bay Guardian):

Pencil pod black wax beans are light yellow and taste hot-diggity good sauteed on high in a cast iron with some s + p, untoasted sesame oil, and fresh-ground coriander (my summer veg secret weapon).

Yummah!

p.s. Zinnias are super easy to grow, and this small variety keeps forever in a vase.

  4. It's been a while that my wife's bugging me to transform a small concrete slab to a small backyard garden. Will surprise her with a small oasis of flowers as soon as she comes back from her holiday vacation.

  5. Outdoor gardens for buildings or other structures though, requires heavy equipments to properly construct.
