Nonstop Pole Beans

We can't eat the pole beans fast enough so I had to start putting some away. Unlike the squash and zucchini which seem to have gone into suspended animation the pole beans are flourishing. The tomatoes are going like gang busters, too, but they aren't turning red fast enough. The few that have ripened have been absolutely delicious but I can't say I have much use for a ton of green tomatoes.

This is the second bag I'm putting in the freezer in three days. I'll be doing another bag soon.

Very nice! Extra motivation for us to get our backyard into shape so we can put in a garden. We're somewhat hopeful for this spring.

Years ago our neighbor had string beans growing on the chain link fence. Steph was four and asked what they were. I told her they were green beans.

"No, Dad," she said. "Green beans come in a can."

We've had a garden almost every year since then.

Legions of green tomatoes at our house. This time last year . . . oy, red and ripe, coming out our ears.

Very cool that the beans are going gangbusters.
