Well neck deep in green beans. Freezer full, fridge full, neighbors full. Rumor has it runner bean soup is nice so will try that. Leaving the big ones now to dry and we will try them as dried beans. Bean getting half a black bag at time. They even caused a domestic last week when i got home from work and they hadn't been frozen so I put my foot down. It didn't take me long to do them :laugh:

This was from back garden ,first tomato ,marrow an 2 days worth of bantam eggs ,they are pekin x seramas pullets I was given for free.

 

That marrow is just yearning to be stuffed and baked... delicious.

 

Stuffed and baked a couple of cucumbers last week, and although nice, are not as nice as the marrow or courgette.
