It’s canning time here on the urban homestead.
Water’s on the stove, glass jars heating in the stove and green beans from the garden and into the jars for a simple easy dilly beans
Jordanne brings the goats and after Fairlight noses the cabinets to check for any booze (yeah she like beer!) Finding it dry, she turns to check out what I’m doing
Blackberry also wants in on the action
“Could I have a bean please.” I can’t resist that face so
Here’s a bean for you Blackberry!
“Don’t forget me!”
Hey, lady, don’t forget me again!
Dilly bean ready for the water bath
Fairlight enjoys some of the leftover beans that were too old to pickle
And Blackberry looks up at me with those big eyes of hers. Sorry Blackberry there’s no more beans!
OK but don’t feel sorry for her because she had plenty of food to nibble on – oak, banana and sugar cane leaves and a few tomatoes (that are destined to be tomato sauce today!) She know’s she’s cute and uses it!
