Sounds good John. You are ahead of me. My entire first planting rotted in the ground. Including the 18 bunches of onions. We have had the rain. We replanted and looks like everything came up. I have already plowed it once, but for the last 3 days, I have been on the business end of a Scovill hoe cleaning up. But that is Deep East Texas. Goes from feast to famine overnight.

Miss having a garden this year. Am planning one for next year.

Good for you and Joann! You all will enjoy them during the winter. I'm assuming those are the first 26 quarts from your garden with more to come?

Stanton, if things go as normal there will be 2 or 3 more pickings before they quit bearing.

That sounds good. You all put up more beans than we do. But there's not many things that are better tasting. What variety? I've used Topcrop and Contender in the past.

We raise Top Crop, Contender, and Italian. Sometimes can them separately, or sometimes mixed, depending on how many there are of each.

Over the weekend the total on green beans was 99 quarts, and one pint. Joann said she is tired, the beans are going to be given away or mowed down from now on.

Blackberry picking has begun. Picking every other day. Somewhere around 2 to 3 gallon a week. Put the picked and washed blackberries in the deep freezer.

Not sure what I'm going to do with all the blackberries.

Made six each 1/2 pints of jelly with the first picking. Used one, 1/2 pint to make blackberry bars.
I have an excuse. CRS.

After relocating my blackberry canes a couple times, this year I'm back to picking some fruit. Picked a couple gallons and got them in the freezer. Robyn also made a nice cobbler. She'll make jelly from the ones in the freezer. Nothing better than scratch biscuits with butter and homemade blackberry jelly!

Ya'll couldn't have just picked a few more to round it up to 100 quarts!! :lol: But 99 is amazing John. Reminds me of my grandparents garden. One year, grandma put up over 120 quarts; they were gone by next year's growing season.

Hang in there. I've had great success planting fall beans. If the weather dries out, give it a try. It may salvage an otherwise difficult gardening season.
