When I was growing up we had a really big garden. My brother Pat totally took care of the garden, it was his baby. Personally, I thought his constant expansion of the garden was ridiculous, the reason being, I had to help in canning and freezing his abundance of veggies. We canned tomatoes, green beans, pickles, peppers; we froze the corn and hung the onions. It took us weeks to get everything put up, but I will say it was worth it in the winter because I enjoyed eating these veggies.

Here’s my beans, they came out nice and tender, and the smokey sauce and bacon add so much flavor to this dish. I hope you enjoy this too!
