We had friends that told us that they were done picking beans in their garden and that we could pick some. We have planted some in our garden, but they are not ready yet. We got our garden in late because of all of the wet weather. Here is what we picked last night in under an hour.
We will snap them today and I hope to can them tomorrow. I like to have about 50-75 cans of beans to last the winter. We eat them about once a week and I always bring them when someone has a need for a meal. Fresh beans are yummy.
I have to buckle down and get some schoolwork done. I am enjoying the summer break too much. We spent all yesterday afternoon by the pool and had a great time. Oh well, it is summer and I am enjoying my summer.
I have also been walking. I enjoy walking down the country dirt road near my house. Here is what the view looks like.
Isn't that lovely. We have been living here for about five years and we love the country. Sometimes the kids miss having kids in the neighborhood nearby, but we import plenty and we love our quiet time. I love socializing with others, but at heart I love just being at home with my family.
I guess I am going to go walk. Evan wants to go with me and do some running. He wants to get ready for soccer. Gotta love some kids who like to be active.
