In the last week I was able to get all my green beans picked and processed. Well, there are still a few growing but those will be used for eating now. The rest have been canned up. I got two more really good size pickings.
Here was the second picking along with my cheerful helpers who helped me to snap them…
I made a second batch of 3 Bean Salad and again got 12 quarts (technically it was 6 quarts and 12 pints worth).
Then I did the third picking last Tuesday…
While this picking was not as big as the last ones it still yielded me 11 quarts of canned beans..
I am happy that I am off to such a productive start to my canning season. I am
hopeful that tomatoes will be next. My 35 tomato plants are loaded with lots of
tomatoes, but for now they are pretty much all green.. so the question is, will
the warm summer weather hang around here long enough for my tomatoes to ripen? We will see… :)
