I'm behind on posting but this is from the 8th of August. This is the second picking of the jade bush beans and the first pick of the wax beans.
I filled my entire deep stainless steel sink with jade bush green beans. They weighed in at 14.8 lbs
And these yellow wax beans weighed in at 6 lbs. Honestly, I won't grow them again. The jade bush gave me 3 pickings and these wax beans barely gave me a full picking before going dry. And they're tougher.
I packed the jade bush in bags since I wasn't sure I was going to be able to can all 21 jars that day. I DID get all 21 jars canned completely. My pressure canner holds 7 quart jars.
Here the wax beans are getting blanched before adding them to the jars.
Here are some of the jars sitting in the canner. I wanted to see if I could get a pic of the rolling boil and yep, you can kind of see it.
14 jars cooling off with the last 7 in the canner.
