We were late on staking up our green beans so they got a little woolly. Saturday evening I was about to complain about their messiness to Ashley when I discovered tons of beans ready for picking. Since then I have picked 3 gallon buckets of green beans. They may not be trained to their fences but they're doing a great job producing!
The red wagon, useful again as a place to clean beans (and other vegetables).
I am picking our beans when they are still young and tender because we like to eat them steamed and then sauteed with garlic. I am going to attempt to freeze a few to see how they do. I never like frozen green beans but I'll give these a try. If they turn out, we can do more next year. My mama always cans her beans but I don't have a pressure canner and am not willing to go through that effort this year.
This was the first harvest of beans. I cooked them at Ashley's sister's house for Sunday supper. Yummy!
How do you like your green beans? Any luck/experience with freezing them?
