WIP Wednesday (13 July 2011)

Didn't get a chance to take pictures but I wanted to get this posted before Wednesday was over. Today's WIP is a bit different. I'm canning green beans today. My garden is doing very well this year. We have a small garden but it is going to keep us in green beans for the next year. Of course, there are only 2 of us in the house so it's not too difficult canning enough to last the year. I'll be making pickles and tomato sauce a little later this summer. I need to figure out how to preserve my potatoes. I've heard that it is possible to keep them in a cool, dry place so maybe if that's the case I'll put them in the crawl space.

Still crocheting 2 afghans--one out of squares and one out of scraps. The scrap ghan (done in a ripple-e pattern) gives me a nice break from my "regular" project. I'll just be working on it when I get bored with the squares and that's a frequent occurrence lately. Oh, and the scrap 'ghan I ended up frogging and starting over again. I have learned that I shouldn't always try "winging" a pattern without looking at it. The ends of my rows were kinda squirrely-looking and that's why I frogged it.

Y'all have a great and productive week.  Hugs...


  1. MMMM I bet those green beans are so good too, do you ever pick them fresh and just steam them for a supper or two?

  2. They are delicious steamed,simmered or in the microwave with a little butter melted on top.

  3. All your fresh vegetables make me wish I'd tried to plant a few things. Sounds like you are definitely reaping your rewards. :-)

  4. This has been a good year for the garden. Last year I only got a few tomatoes. I get tickled when I think that I'm getting so many green beans for the price of a package of seeds that was $1. Although, I need to count the water and the Miracle Grow too.
