I used to sit on the front porch with Mamaw and keep her company while she got the green beans ready to be canned.

Pop the end, snap the other, and pull the string. Throw it on the pile.

They still had dirt on them and were fresh from the ground. Sometimes there would be a worm in the pile. I would save these worms and put them in old pop bottles--one on top of the other--and Mom put them on top of the stand-up freezer in our kitchen.

Pop the end, snap the other, and pull the string. Throw it on the pile.

They came from the garden. The garden was long and it was steady. The garden gave us food as long as it was taken care of. The sound of the tractor in the background kept your mind off of the work of sorting through thousands of beans.

Pop the end, snap the other, and pull the string. Throw it on the pile.

There's no such thing as too much food. Store it for the winter and never go hungry.

Pop the end, snap the other, and pull the string. Throw it on the pile.
