I copied this image from https://pixabay.com/images/search/green%20beans/ thanks to @deeanndmathews for telling me about this site.
This is my post for #freewriters Wednesday prompt green beans hosted by @mariannwest

When I saw this basket with the green beans in it, many memories came to me. My Dad always had a huge garden and canned everything from his garden, I wish that I had his recipe for corn relish. At one time he had enough canned vegetables to last 3 years. I do not know if I want to eat it for that long but I guess you could.

Anyway back to the green beans. He had a basket just like the one in the picture. If you saw him pick it up and go out the back door, you knew he was going to the garden and you better disappear because if you were anywhere in the house he would find you and you would be sitting on the front porch swing snapping green beans. I hated doing this, but now I would give anything if I could be sitting there with him snapping green beans.
It is something that writing about snapping green beans would bring a tear.

Dad was one that made you eat your vegetables, I would gag on carrots but would have to eat them, now I love carrots, isn't that crazy. He was also one to make you eat breakfast. He loved to cook zucchini squash with scrambled eggs, it was not bad but I was never big on eating breakfast. Lunch he did not make us eat if we did not want it, but dinner you had to put some of everything on your plate and eat everything on it.....

This is a pigfish that I found in my boat, it has been this long since I have been able to fish it. Today we fished in my husband's boat. We did not catch many sailcats maybe 50 pounds that is 25 dollars but also we might have 40 pounds of jacks they will be 60 dollars, it is not a great payday for 2 people working but it is 85 dollars that we did not have. We both have Dr. appointments tomorrow so we can not fish. Maybe I will try to work on my motor, AGAIN!!!!

I have been too dang busy to write about how dang busy I am! Haven't even kept up with my Hive reading. Glad you caught a few fish. Best wishes with the doctor appointments.

Thank you so much! Too late LOL
I'm getting done at work at 4:30 which is 17 minutes away and then I have a nail appointment at 5. All the busyness will really start tomorrow. I'm looking forward to all the settling down afterwards and two weeks of being out of town. I hope your visit with the doctor went well are you and your husband!

Thank you, I have wondered what happened to you. Life seems to get in the way of things we do for fun, doesn't it?

I, too, have not had time between work and wedding organizing to write anything until today. I am sending prayers for both doctor appointments and I know what you mean about snapping green beans. I did this with Mom and Grandma and wish I could sit and talk with them again while snapping green beans.

Nice freewrite and glad to help ... both my parents are big on vegetables, and that explains their longevity ... carrots are VERY important, so your dad was right.

I miss snapping beans with my grandmother ...
