Canning green beans in Brainerd
Came back with pail full. We washed the beans, Pa cut off ends and I cut into pieces.
Filled the jars, got 13 pints! Moved into the church kitchen for canning as can't put
pressure cooker on glass stop stove. One of the jars didn't seal. More beans to come.
Then beets, potatoes too. Tried canning potatoes last year, will do so again this year.
Should have some carrots too! Lots of tomatoes, just a hint of color so far. Oh, yes,
peppers are producing. Have been giving them away. One long cuke to come in, also
1 squash! That black dirt that was delivered last fall and the pickup load of manure
certainly improved the production.
