Fortunately, I don't think that children's song is referring to green beans 'cause, man, I've got some green beans. Visited a friend last night because her husband, knowing I love green beans, planted "some" for me in his garden. "Some" ended up being 2 rows each about 30-40 feet long - which translates to about 8 plastic grocery bags full. Eight plastic grocery bags translates to an entire large Coleman cooler full. Even before I put the water in, the beans filled the cooler.
So I've spent the better part of today, processing these beans so I can blanch and freeze them. Moira helped.... a lot.
Everything is now blanched and vacuum sealed. I have 20 bags of beans to put in the chest freezer. Each bag is a little shy of a quart - I didn't measure exactly. We also gave about about 3 plastic grocery bags full to friends and neighbors. We have enough beans to last until this time next year! Yum!!
