My Mamaw

I went up to Murphy last week & made sure to get a picture of me with my Mamaw. Emma Rose let me take a picture I'd her with Mamaw, but Anabelle wouldn't do it.

Green Beans

My uncles have awesome gardens in Murphy. My Uncle David picked a huge 5 gallon bucket of white half runners for me last weekend. The girls helped me with the "shellies," and we got the beans all ready to be canned by Sunday night. These are by far my favorite beans, mostly because where they are grown & how they remind me of my Mamaw.

This is the picture of the first seven quarts I canned. It's also a visible representation that I conquered my fear of the pressure canner! I canned the next seven quarts Tuesday night, and I'm ready for more!

We planted some Kentucky Wonders here at our house, & I might have enough for a good canning run by mid week.
