Beans are one of the best things to grow in the garden, they are easy to grow and almost every body likes them. We like them fresh or canned, I actually like them better canned. We can a lot of beans each year in our pressure canner. Each season and we dry the pods, then save the beans for next years planting and for using in soups.
