The past few days have been just gorgeous! The yellow sun has been shining and temperatures have been very comfortable! There have been loads of clothes, quilts, sheets and towels basking in and drying out in the beautiful sunshine! The children and I have spent our mornings doing our schoolwork. After lunch, we have been in the garden picking and then snapping beans and shucking corn....which I then can.
A lady from church called me the other morning, she had an abundance in her garden and asked if we would want any of her bounty! I gladly accepted her offer and that afternoon, the children and I went to her house and joined her at picking. She gave us some Italian green beans, tomatoes, a zucchini, corn and a few peppers! Such a blessing!
I have never had Italian green beans before...they are so neat...just like green beans but flat and have a different flavor. I canned them the same way I do regular green beans.
All ready to be processed in the canner...
After they were canned, I set them out for 24 hours. Then the screw-tops were taken off, the lids were dated and they were given a good wash-down before heading down to the basement for storage! I have lovely rows of food arranged on the shelves! I have taken photos that I will share, next time, hopefully!
