fall green bean harvest

I love this time of year.My mom and grandmothers all canned and froze produce from the gardens.My 4 sisters, brother and I all learned and still do the same.
This past week it was green beans.There is nothing better in the winter than home canned green beans.Nothing from the store can compare to the flavor.I have hard water so there is a bit of lime build up on the outside of the jars after 45 years of use but that does not affect the goodness of the beans.
Our friend Jerry was kind enough to share his green bean crop with us this year.Next year we will try his set up in our own garden.Pole beans that you stand up to pick is the ONLY way to go.As you can see from the pictures.
