My first picking of green beans was last Thursday evening at 3.5 lbs. Then, Sunday morning a second picking of 5.5 lbs. I canned 16 pints Sunday afternoon.

Last evening I picked 12.2 lbs. Expect to pick again by Thursday or Friday and put them up over the weekend. Should be two canners full (about 38 pints).

Glad I planted the garden in early April instead of the traditional late April/early May. My sweet corn has finished tassling and the ears are coming on strong. Should have sweet corn in a week or so. :D

We always plant Improved Pinto Beans which is actually an heirloom variety. They are all gone now, but we put up 19 packages of snap pintos and 39 packages of shelled pintos.

Picked 20 lbs of bush-type green beans on over the weekend and put up 36 pints. With the 16 from last weekend, that makes 52 pints for winter. We don't eat beans at every meal, so that should hold us for a while. :D

Should have sweet corn ("How Sweet It Is") by late this week...:{_}:

We have the same. It always seems so slow for them to get going.

My replanting, from the woodchuck "mowing", is just breaking ground, so I think I'll win the "latest beans" award! Ed

Trapped one woodchuck,in my life. I guess they are smarter than I am! Maybe something other than donuts for bait, would work! Ed

Picked my first green beans of the season last evening. Got enough to split the first picking with my daughter. They are Blue lakes bush beans and they are very tender. Got a good idea what dinner will be today.
