The weather is changing Fast!
In some areas of the county we had our first frost last night. I was worried this morning because I have Isaiah’s planting of green beans in the garden yet (which are taking off like gang busters again) but, checking them this morning they are fine. I picked a few gallons & they are processing in the canner now. I’ve put up plenty for the next year but I don’t want them to go to waste and you can always use extra. I had to run to the store for more jars & lucked out. Cases of jars were on sale buy 2 get 1 free…same for lids. I left with 6 cases and 6 packs of lids. SCORE!
7 more pints of green beans cooling on the counter
But, while I was in the produce section I overheard a conversation…one guy was talking to another about beans, he commented they had a bunch “fresh home grown” put up in the freezer. The other guy made comment he hadn’t realized he gardened…to which he responded, “I don’t, I go pick from my neighbors garden at night” & that he’s picked “lots-a stuff from there all summer”. I wish I knew who he was or better yet, who his neighbor was! I had to walk away before I hit the slug up side the head with a bag of oranges. GAH!!
Watch your gardens folks…it’s starting already.
