We have beans! We lifted some of the leaves from our rather prolific bush bean plants and discovered a wonderful surprise - ready to pick green beans! We brought home this batch yesterday in the hopes that there will be more beans ready to be picked on Tuesday or Wednesday.
I'm planning to make a big batch of dilly beans this week and so I will probably pick up some beans from a farmer's market as well. Last year we canned 2 batches of dilly beans and they were all gone by Christmas, this year we want to fill our cupboard so they will last us much longer.
The recipe that we used last year was this one from Canadian Living, the beans were spicy, crispy, and amazing.
