top crop beans are doing great and taste great also. picked the 1st batch yesterday. got 2 gal these are the first planted. these will be for eating fresh. the big planting will be for canning, and some freezing. going to put up some pickles this year, some dill, bread&butter, and some sweet and hot chunks. going to try some using splenda. not going to freeze corn on the cob this year just can't do it. tried a different way last year a never fail! it was still mushy. Surprised we are freezing but no cob this year. canning tomatoes & juice, maybe make some salsa. have a good day.

Sweet Granddaughter.   Those devices really scare me. I won't use one. Even the thought of blood turns my stomach.
