The beans are up...Yippee Yahoo!

Provider green beans were a HUGE success for us last year, we still have bags in the freezer and cans in the pantry. This year we are even dedicating one bed just to save seed, if we get too many we can always use them as soup beans (very versatile bean, this one :)

We've had such warm weather that we decided to go ahead and get a few of our 'first time ever growing tomatoes from seed' tomatoes into the ground. We have never planted outside this early and have already been informed that another storm is on it's way, but the freezing weather should be over at this point and I think/hope these little guys can withstand what's coming.

The bulk of seedlings are still in little pots in our back yard.
We planted 10 and have 100 (I kid you not) left....what was I thinking...eek!

Provider green beans went into the ground also,
but a box of dirt does not make for a good photo :)

Kale :)

We grew kale for the first time this year, but still haven't actually eaten any. We grew it for the chickens, who BTW....LOVE it!
