green bean picking


we spent Friday at a local pick your own farm picking green beans, I love fresh produce and putting it up for the winter. It was a rainy humid afternoon, but, we did okay. The plants where so full a few filled our box pretty quickly. we are heading back this week to gt some more and also some beets and squash to freeze as well.





everybody picking and snacking on the fresh as fresh can be beans, we also picked some flat runner beans by mistake they are next to the green beans and look a lot alike. So we brought a bunch of them home too and they are so yummy to, we made them with a piece of ham for dinner so good.






Our fresh picked beans ready to take home and make into yummy salads, soups, and just plain old dipping in to ranch dressing .



We had a wonderful afternoon picking the green beans, and went home and began the process of freezing them.The kids where tired and hot, and dirty, and wanting to go pick more.

The only pick your own farms I've ever been to were for berries. I'll have to check and see if we have any for other produce. What fun!

Did they actually eat them as is, without cooking? do you do anything special to the strang beans (we just boil ours in water)??

The kids look so cute and happy.

I have never been green bean picking, how fun! I do like strawberry picking. There is nothing like a freshly-just-picked strawberry.
