There is an old say'n that goes.."Be careful what ya ask for cause ya just might get it".
I am think'n this means what you think will be so wonderful may not be....will be more then you can handle or not as good as you thought or MORE THEN YOU THOUGHT!
For me a lil of all at this point! Ha!

I am up to my neck in snap beans!! Ha!

Yes I wanted them... been check'n on them for a month.
Well here they come!! Got a good bushel +!!!

I will wash and snap about 4 of these big cup tins today or at least will try.
I want to begin canning tomorrow AM!
Soooo that means no sewing, of any kind for a couple days.
I will be able to find a good movie on the tube to watch while I snap all day... so reckon that could be considered a GOOD THING. ;-)

Well as I see it this is more winter food for our pantry!
I can sew after all this is done.
Next canning crop will be tomatoes but that is still off a ways!!!!


  1. Have fun with those snap beans. We have had such a weird summer that NONE of mine came up! Bummer!

  2. I'm so glad you found my blog, I've been reading yours and we have a lot in common. I love to sew....I'll tell you something I have done with snap beans and tomatoes. I quick freeze them. You have to lay them out on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer and then I bag them in freezer bags. They are just like you just picked them. Run a little water on the tomatoes, just out of the freezer and the skin comes right off.
    Mom passed 2 1/2 years ago and I know how you miss yours.

  3. Mmmmmmm.....fresh green beans!! Loved calamity jane's cottage suggestion on quick freezing them!


Luv hear'in from ya!!
