From Garden to Kitchen

I have so many green beans that I decided to make some Dilly Beans. The Garlic and Dill are from the garden too! I had enough for four pints, but will probably make a few more with farmer's market beans. They are one of my favorites.

This year I'm growing Pineapple Tomatillos (ground cherries) for the first time. I bought some every week at the market last year. I found seeds from Territorial and started seedlings. Fearing my little starts would never grow up, I found a plant and purchased that too. For now I am eating from the purchased plant, but my seedlings are coming along. I eat them fresh and they are like candy. SO good! The woman who grew them said you just shake the plant and pick them off the ground. And she was right, that is the best method. The plant is oddly shaped, only a foot tall and much wider.

In other news, I've been crafting hippie hemp/ bead bracelets. Very easy and rewarding.


  1. Such a nice, tasty, crafty life you lead.

  2. Oh yummy dilly beans! When I went to the inspection at my house my real estate agent pointed out all the rosemary, thyme, chives, and garlic already growing! Very excited (though not so much about all the dry rot). I like those bracelets too- the one with the ring especially.
