Below you will see some of our green beans.
There is a story to that small harvest. We have been looking and waiting for green beans to show up and nothing. Well, the other day my husband pulled back the big leaves to find some green beans. Apparently we have been waiting for this to climb like a vine when in actuality, it is a green bean bush. So, this small harvest will go to hubby's lunch. I will probably saute them up with some garlic and butter and call it a day. Live and learn, eh?
Here is an aerial shot of the tomatoes. I want them to be ripe now so we can have some tomatoe sandwiches.
Here is a front view of one of our pepper plants Next up is a shot of our carrot tops and a view of the cucumber vines. Looks like there will be lotsa cucumbers too! Woohoo!
An older lady friend of mine at church remarried recently and she and her new husband have been downsizing...consolidating her things from her house to his. In the past she has had gardens and canned a lot. She doesn't do this anymore. She will be giving me all her canning equipment. She has jars, lids, rings, and the jar grabber thingie...lol, I am not sure of it's proper name. I just need to purchase the pot with the basket thing in it. I am so excited!
I have been reading up on canning and freezing from a book I checked out at the local library. Next year we will have to plant some strawberries and blueberries so we can make some freezer jam.
Enjoy your day in your little part of the world!
