Harvest

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!

We started with good intentions
