Green Beans

Thankfully green bean season is over for us.

This is good, because for awhile there I felt like I was battling a never-ending pile of greenness that bred when my back was turned.
Do you have ANY idea how long it takes to get through two trash bags full of green beans? Even worse -

- I can't knit and clean green beans at the same time. The horror still hasn't left me.

I noticed your mil gave you the green beans in a plastic bag. The farmers at my plot gave me a tip. Keep the green beans in a paper grocery bag. The paper will absorb the extra moisture green beans give off. Will prevent rust spots and keep them better longer(hopefully the beans were picked when dry).
Then maybe you can give yourself an extra couple of days when putting them up, lol! :-)

Ha ha ha.... totally laughing at your sister's comment... lol. That is a crazy amount of beans! I'm a little jealous - I love home-canned green beans. YUM. Sorry about all the work that you had to put in to care for them!!

I know I've said this before, but I just love Peter in glasses - he is so handsome in them! ;)
