The Bean Patch (literally!)

The Bean Patch kids broke in the garden today with an enthusiastic bean harvest.  We found bean pods, plucked them off, and enjoyed the delectable goodies inside the pods.

Later, we did more picking with the whole group (and even parents who came in at pick up).  What better way to bond and come together socially.  And it's amazing how even raw beans can taste so good when they come from your own garden, picked by your own hands.  Also impressive was how willing and eager the kids were to help each other find bean pods to pick and to let others partake of their own harvest.
