Homegrown Green Beans and Bacon Recipe


It doesn’t get any better than homegrown!  Our garden is definately a family affair.  It gives us a chance to be together and work for the benefit of the family.  We love the thought of planting, watching the seedlings sprout, harvesting and then sitting down together at the table enjoying our homegrown feast.

One of my favorite veggies is green beans, the way Mom and Grandma used to make them.  It’s not heart healthy, but it sure is good!
