My in-laws live a little further south so their garden is always ready way before ours. They also have a huge garden and plant a lot more than we can. The onions and the beans were just a few things they gave us. I was able to get 5 quart bags full of the beans. This year I tried freezing them. I usually can but thought I would try it a different way. I also chopped and diced the onions and double bagged them and put them in the freezer. It is so easy to just grab a bag and put them with your roasts or soups. You can use them in just about anything. They also gave us some red potatoes and peas. We are in heaven and feel so blessed that they shared their crops with us. Don't you just love gardens?
