"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

green beans


My day in green beans pictures.




















Final count ~ 16- 3/4 lb. bags of blanched frozen beans.  And 9 quarts of my personal favorite... Dilly beans! It's definitely a start.

Blessings, Debbie

  3. Green beans have always been one of my favorites and we did not plant them this year since we were just starting. You get to enjoy them all year now because of your hard labor!

  5. Chuckling - I *know* this Day in Beans. Could be the name of a harvest festival. I've just been blanching and freezing my yellow beans. Never tried dilly beans, but you've got me intrigued.

  8. Oh your beans look wonderful. Alas I have very few, my scarecrow did not work as planned and the blackbirds apparently love my beans. B

  18. Those are some nice looking beans! I'm all done canning mine for this year, and though I didn't get nearly as many as last year, I'm still glad for the jars I have!

    I don't know what dilly beans are. Do you add other seasonings to them?
