Picking beans may not sound glamorous, but it sure is a lot of fun! Yesterday we went to a friend’s backyard to help him pick some fagioli (beans). His backyard is a wondrous organised mess of fruit trees and vegetation. There are apple trees, strawberries, blackberries, cucumber, zucchine, chillies, carrots, and rows and rows of beans!
Then couldn’t help horsing around
We picked enough to feast on
And snacked on the juiciest strawberries ever!
