Last week I headed to the local farmer's market to find some fresh eats. Our garden is just starting to produce, so I love visiting the market and getting a few things I can't quite get out of my garden yet.

I have a couple of favorite vendors I love to buy from, one being an older gentleman who always has the best potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, and more. He's always been the sweetest guy, and I just love buying from him.

This time he had mounds of fresh green beans. I got a big bag of beans, and he asked me what I was going to do with them, whether I was canning them or freezing them. I mentioned making a big pot of green beans, potatoes, and sausages.

He then proceeded to invite himself over, asking me when they would be done. I cracked up laughing.

He's definitely my favorite farmer, 'cause he kinda reminds me of my own dad and grandpa.

After digging a few potatoes from our own patch in the back yard, I set to work.

Snapping the beans is probably one of my favorite parts, it's just so relaxing. Of course, my helper supervised as I snapped, and the boys had to come out and snap a few.

This is something my mom always made when I was growing up, especially during the summer gardening season. I've kinda carried the tradition over to my own family.

Every summer when beans come on and potatoes are ready to dig, I make a big, huge pot of beans.

Green Beans, Sausages, and Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

It's a fantastic meal, healthy and delicious. The sausages add flavor to the beans and potatoes, almost to the point that you hardly need any salt.

It's filling and the best part is, my kids love it.

  1. This looks delicious Mel, I will definitely be making this in the future! And I love the way Harold happens to be in the background!! lol!

  2. Those green beans look good. Is there a recipe for “green bean soup”? I like to make a “cream of green bean” soup, but unable to find a recipe. Can you help?
