As I was wondering through my garden Tuesday evening I noticed I had a couple of green beans. I started picking and realized I had about 2 lbs. I figured it was time to call the local farm stand and see if they had any string beans. They did! Wednesday morning I loaded up the boys (including DH) and off we went to the farm stand to pick up a bushel of green beans, 3 big bags of corn, and a bag of onions. Next stop the butcher shop for bacon ends, then home.
The boys helped me locate jars in the basement, we brought them up and threw them in the dishwasher to get clean and sanitized, and I started washing and snapping beans.
Dh and I run 2 pressure canners and we canned 21 quarts of beans. Have I told you how much I love my new stove with the extra large burners, and the high BTU burners? I can beans like my great grandmother canned-- with bacon and some onion.
I finally finished my buffet which I have been working on for the past year. I sanded off a layer of avocado paint, green, yellow, and white paint, and still did not get all the way to bare wood in very many places. There are lots of neat details in this piece in the woodwork.
I did manage to finish my Navajo block for July's RSC----OK I didn't finish it until it was August but it is finished.
