Garden Fair

One of my greatest joys is gardening with my children. It is "Put'n Up Time" as we country folk say in the South. That means we are busy canning, drying, and preserving the harvest for winter meals. Today we started harvesting beans. Today's star was dragon tongue beans. They are easy to grow and are great solo or in soups and stews. Our southern garden loves them.
My little helpers !
My little man on a mission !
The Henny chicks getting there share !
You're the best human mom ever!
