The plot thickens…

By Penny Stine

You may think this looks like an innocent jar of green beans. In reality, it's a secret weapon to encourage my husband to join in the planning for next season’s garden.

Turns out, my husband loves dilly beans. Who knew? I certainly didn’t, and we’ve been married 26 years. I only made five jars of them last summer, but promised to make boatloads of them next year, if only he’d design and build a better trellis for pole beans to climb.

He immediately grabbed a pencil and paper and started drawing.
