All of the green beans picked earlier this week have been canned and are ready to stash in the pantry. It would have been 14 quarts but the bottom fell out of one as I was taking it out of the canner (hate it when that happens ;-( ) And so 13 quarts thus far ready for cold winter nights. If mother nature will bless us with some rain I should have more ready by the weekend.
I had just finished up when youngest son and new wife wandered down and wanted to help get up potatoes. He fired up the tractor and we  started picking up. Hubby arrived soon after and at the end of the evening 7 1/2 bushels are now ready to sort and put in the cellar for the year. Usually we can finish the last up at Christmas as mashed potatoes. I had hoped to plant a late crop but no seed taters can be found. I have a few that have sprouted here in the kitchen that I will try. No worries sweet potatoes are planted and will get us through.
