Our oldest daughter stuck with the bean picking for an hour Tuesday morning. Then she screamed, “I’m Done!” and ran into the house crying. This is not what we want out of our children.
Did we push her too hard? Was she simply having a bad day? Probably a little of both with a dash of older brother tossed in.
It’s the hottest weather we have had all year, we have pigs again, broiler chicks, pullets we hatched out, young rabbits, stupid ducks, layers, cows and a 40′ row of beans. Not to mention the tomatoes we are simply ignoring. The workload is taking its toll on everyone. That’s why we only plant beans every few years.
Anybody else risking your children’s sanity or skirting divorce by canning beans this year?
