Beans

Our beans are finally coming.
I planted two different varieties this year to determine which we prefer...so I know what to plant again next year.  Next year they will be planted earlier in the season though.  We put up some raised bed boxes this year and hauled in some really good soil....but it took a lot more dirt than I anticipated....and since that was my husband's contribution to our 'garden'....and since he keeps a rather busy schedule...you get the picture.  :)

I was given some green beans.  I wasn't really sure when they were picked, (you really want to process your garden produce right after harvesting for the most nutritional value) so I decided to turn them into pickled beans.
My family really enjoys Dilly Beans.
Me....not so much.

I saw this recipe over on Tonya's blog.
I decided to give it a try.
We will sample them next week.
If we like them I will make more.

I am still 'obligated' to make Dilly Beans.

Today I am trying out a new pickle recipe.....
because the cucumbers are abundant right now.

Love pickles. My dad’s mom did pickles with cukes and cauliflower and watermelon rind; so delicious. A neighbor made some dynamite picles earlier this year and we have enjoyed that jar full of goodness several times.
