I have frozen 7 gallons or so of green beans. Here is how. Bring water to a boil, prefer double boiler, add a large amount of beans, bring back to a boil for one minute or so. Remove beans to large bowl and run cold water on them to cool. Dump beans on a towl to let excess water run off. Put in freezer bags and put in freezer. Very easy to do. There is a type of freezer bag available that has a device to suck air out of the bag to prevent freezer burn. Anyone knowing of ways to freeze or can other veggies please tell us. Also, in the fall you can protect acorn or butternut squash by putting down 2 two by fours on the floor. Put the squash across across the boards not touching each other or the floor and they will not roat.
