    Harvest time

    Our beans did well this year. These are called "Dragon Tongue" beans. They are bigger than the average green bean, and as you can see, not green. Picked 28 pounds yesterday and turned them into 61 pints of canned beans.

    I picked our first beans a couple days ago, about 3 weeks later than normal. It's been very dry here but lots of rain coming this weekend.

    Those make very nice dried beans and rehydrate nicely to cook as a "red" bean. I really like the taste with cornbread and butter and salt. Yuuuuum

    Apples here, more than we can work. Best size and flavor we've had in a long time. Nothing the past two years? We were starting to run very low. The deer and neighbors really enjoying the over supply.

    That was last year. This year our bean crop is looking pretty poor. Good thing we still have a lot canned up from last year.

    Re: Harvest time

    What is it about this year & folks' gardens not doing well? My neighbor plowed his squash in because it wasn't doing any good. His tomatoes did fair, but not like normal.

    My squash plants are big and look good, just no squash yet. Usually I have been eating them for a month by this time of year. Broccoli didn't produce much either.

    My tomatoes are just starting to get ripe, which is normal for up here. Production looks like it will be about normal.

    Hungarian hot wax peppers are doing good. So are my onions, carrots, beats, potatoes, kale, lettuce, and spinach.

    It's hard to tell with the corn yet, it doesn't look great, but not terrible either.

    Re: Harvest time

    One round on canning Pickles then black mold hit them. Sprayed but it was to late.
    Beans are just coming on.
    Blight hit some variety of tomatoes but not the others so we have tomatoes constantly coming on to can.
    Lots of squash and zucchini.
    Jalapenos, pablenaros, cyanne and banna peppers are coming on too.
    Egg plants slow but starting.

    Too much rain this year.

    Those were all just canned in water. I made some pickled grean beans later last fall. If I get enough to do anything with this year I will probably pickle them all, they were pretty good, and I still have lots of the regular ones left.
