Beans Galore

While we were away the neighbors picked and ate all the beans they could. Yesterday we picked about a 1/2 Bu.

Nee: Mom, what are we ever going to do with all these beans?
Me: What do you mean, I always can this many beans.
Nee: Every thrid day?
Me: Oh, I see what you mean

Nee: I think your are trying to feed a village beans and corn.

The photo was taken after giving a good amount to the fellow who helps with irrigation. I call the picture, "Berner with Beans"

The beans magically turned into 35 pints (amount corrected)of Dilly Beans - OK I worked through the night canning.

Holy cow! That's a lot of beans! I am SO jealous of your enormous supply of dilly bean goodness!

That looks awesome! I've never tried dilly beans.

Dilly beans are wonderful. The girls were saying if they hadn't fought over the supply last year they'd say I had too many.

They look great. I think they look like whole pints though, not half. Maybe you should do quarts. Or do you not eat that many at one time? I'm impressed!

YUM! Green beans, pedestrian though they may be, are still one of my all-time favorites! They look wonderful!
