Preserving vegetables .

 However the summer was wet and cold, the last 10 days in September we have had nice weather.
The runner beans and the green beans in the kitchen garden have grown in those 10 days.
For my DH, the kitchen garden is a lot of work. And it is very sorry for him ( and me) when nothing grows properly.
As you see there is leek and green cabbage ( boerekool) too for the winter.
Like other years I preserve the veggies we cannot eat at once.
It is much work too, but in the winter it is so convenient to have some glasses with vegetables ready in the cellar!
It is much less than other years but I am happy what I have so far.
Now it is raining cats and dogs again and the temperature sunk to 9 degrees Celsius.
Lucky we who have a heater :))
Now I can go back to my sewing. The wonky purple quilt is almost ready.

Hei!! Så fin kjøkkenhage du har!! Det er fint å kunne ta fram egendyrkede grønnsaker til vinteren!! Jeg er ikke sikker på hvor du holder til. Jeg tror det er nord for Brønnøysund?? AnneKari:-)

Very productive and the kitchen garden looks lovely.

Hei Ati. Ja jeg skjønner godt at Simon (og du) fortviler over kjøkkenhagen, det er ikke akkurat noe drivende temperatur ute, selv om vi ikke er så langt nord som Brønnøysund. Lykke til med resten av teppet til Yvonne. Det blir kjempefint. Klem Ruth.

What a spectacular vegetable garden you have - and I totally agree, it is very hard work.

Het ziet er zo gezellig uit die potten met bonen, leuk om te doen, en lekker voor straks in de winter!

Hi Ati - Your vegetable gardens looks amazing and all those jars full, for the winter months.
Would you share your recipe? What do you put in the jars to preserve the beans?
