Kidney Bean Burgers

"Today I planted the first two plants in our garden, my Mum got me Thyme and Parsley. Do you like gardening? I grew up in a house with a giant garden with endless possibilities to play. We had several fruit trees, a herb garden and lots of veggies growing everywhere. I always loved to eat stuff from our own garden. Now I'm having my very first own garden, which is super shady unfortunately. Any tips for veggies that grow in (very) shady places. Nevertheless I love spending my time outside sooo much, especially now that all plants start to bloom. For dinner Daniel and I had the leftovers of yesterday's pasta salad along with one of these bean burgers on homemade buns."
