ive been meaning to write something ever since i read your post the other day. ultimately, we all do the best we can. I'm so sorry to hear about indi's allergies. hopefully they'll be somethign that will pass as her immune system gets stronger. You and your space you've created here were inspiration for me to make changes in my life, becoming vegan (as much as possible) - and that positive influence you've had doesn't change because of a change in your own eating habits. ultimately, what we eat is as personal as ourselves - and i just wish there were more people who were as conscious and educated about/of what they were eating as you. xo
ps. forgot I actually also wanted to say about the beans - nothing more delicious than beans straight from the garden! so crunchy, so good. x
I *love* green beans, though I apparently don't have the knack to grow them. What are the purple beans? I've never seen them, what do they taste like?
Yum! Our dwarf beans are only just teeny, but we ate our first broad beans yesterday... raw, while standing in the garden :-)
The lovely crunch of green beans straight from the garden - hard to beat.
Angie- purple beans taste just like green ones! I think I imagine they're sweeter... but I don't think they really are. But they look beautiful- don't they? xx m.
I live up in the US, and most of the blogs I read are US based. I'm reading about the ending of summer, the fall, the coming of winter, and the ending of things. It's very sweet but sort of melancholy, with the snow and the dying gardens...then I read yours and it's like a breath of spring air! "OH! Planting! Harvesting! SPRINGTIME and GREEN!" There's this moment of confusion and then a lighting up as I remember "OH YEAH! She's in AUSTRALIA!"Thank you for bringing a little bit of spring into my fall!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I do my best to respond to questions within the comments section so tune back in for a reply. xx m.
