Lots of beans in a small enclosed space...sounds like a really bad idea, right? This weekend that was exactly what happened.
My garden is crazy with green (and yellow and purple) beans. Call it first timers enthusiasm I guess. I have frozen quite alot already, bringing them home Sunday evenings and cleaning, blanching and freezing the following morning. This weekend was different. I had a wonderful, talented, and oh yah beautiful, knockout sister helping me (did i forget anything Tracy??). With her and her husbands help we picked a whole cooler of beans, and turned them into 11 quarts of frozen beans!
I am very sad to have lost all my pictures: piles and piles of beans, the little camper stove and all the filled bags in the freezer.
I may pick a few more for a batch of Dilly Beans, but the rest I will allow to mature and keep as dry beans for consumption and seeds for next year. It feels good to have 'finished' something.
