Kentucky Wonder Beans, Dragon Tounge Beans, Yellow Wax Beans & Bacon...Is there anything better?

This growing season has been a great one for beans. We are picking beans everyday. I have been mixing the beans and coming up with differnt recipes for eating.

These are Dragon Tounge beans! This is the first time I have grown them and they are so delicous! I will be growing them again!

Here I have Dragon Tounge, Kentucky Wonder and Yellow Wax Beans all mixed together to make my favorite side dish.

We call this dish Bacon and Green Beans!

1 pound of Beans Cut into 1 inch pieces
4 strips of Bacon chopped up
1/4 cup of chopped Red Onion
Throw them in your pot and cover with water.
1 tablespoon cracked Black Pepper
I boil for about 5 to 7  minutes keeping some crunch to the beans.

Im hoping to have enough to make Dilly Beans. But, the way we keep eating them it may not happen.

How do you cook your green beans?
What kind of beans are you growing?

Happy Gardening my Friends!!!


  1. We planted the same beans -- but we're WAY behind you. We finally got some growing -- but we're weeks away from harvest!

  2. Your stuff is so ahead of mine...but that's Cali for ya...I am going to go out and harvest tomorrow and maybe there will be some beans that are ready. My scallop squashes are just little babies. The beans and bacon look delicious!
