Gift of green beans!

The groundhog may have gotten the best of my green beans but a friend came to the rescue last week. She was finished canning for her family and had lots of Italian green beans left to pick.


I was given almost 37 pounds of beans so a canning day was in order! My mom and youngest daughter snapped for hours while I was at work so I could get them all canned on my day off.

Almost 7 hours and 26 quarts later I was finished!


Still getting small harvests from my garden but have all but given up on it this year. The potato beetles have made my garden their residence and I’m unable to get the upper hand. They’ve destroyed the eggplants that had made a come back and I only harvested one.


Cucumbers are thriving and I’m picking small amounts of tomatoes and freezing them until I have enough to make sauce.

There’s always next year I guess!
