A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

Big Mess O'Beans
The beans are coming! the beans are coming! The Roma beans are producing like mad. I picked a huge colander full the other day and today, when I looked again, there were at least three times as many. Looks like it will be a bumper crop of beans and the pole beans haven't even begun producing! Oh my! Looks like lots of green bean casseroles over the winter. The hollyhocks are blooming beautifully and I caught this one with a bumble bee inside the blossom.
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
