Gluts A-Go-Go

The other 3 are away at the moment and I am starting to wonder how many more beans I can stand.
I'll have to start investigating how to preserve them. We don't have a freezer, is it possible to dry /pickle / salt them as a way of keeping them? Maybe I should invest in a small cannery.
Bean chutney might be the way forward.

And then there's the courgettes....

The exciting news is the discovery of two little Butternut Squashes. Butternut Squash is my third favourite vegetable (after sweetcorn and broccoli, it's important know these things) so I'll be spending extra time talking to them, to give them as much advice and encouragement as I can offer.
