After dinner last night, I decided I had some extra time to can the green beans that had been waiting in the refrigerator. I ended up canning 7 quarts and freezing another 2 quarts. I don't generally like to freeze green beans. However, I do love Green Bean Casserole made with frozen green beans. I had the extra beans and I did not want to go through the whole canning process again for only 2 quarts so I chose to freeze them. I do wish canners would hold more than 7 quarts at one time, but I have yet to ever see one of those.
Here is a look at the first flower bouquet out of the garden this season. It was made up of baby's breath, pincushion flowers, and zinnias. I am headed back out to the garden this morning. I haven't picked out there in 2 days so I am thinking I will have some lovely surprises waiting for me.
grace and peace,
