My eye level view of Zander. When I sit in this chair he looks me in the eye.
What about all these lovely beans? They are doing great but I need more more more. Unfortunately some of the beans I planted earlier in the summer didn't work out. Why not? One word: Tenderette. I just don't like them. I tried the Tenderette variety but they just aren't as good as the good old Blue Lake variety. So the turkeys got the Tenderette beans and my soil was improved so it all ended well.
What bean snapping looks like around here. Filled with big dogs.
The worst thing about canning beans is snapping off the ends. It's not hard it just takes some time. Fortunately I have some very good helpers.
Kai kept pestering me until I gave her a bean.
Zander and Kai are naturally very curious and are interested in everything. Bubby likes to put his big head in everything I'm doing. Kai just kind of noses around and sneakily gets involved. They thought the beans were amazing.
Zander always takes things from me very gently. Look at those chompers tho!
I finally gave up and let them have some. They didn't want to eat the beans, just wanted wanted to chew on them. It was pretty hilarious.
Then he just chewed it apart.
I love how they use their paws for everything - they are very cat-like. Of course, they take anything I offer them very gently. For as powerful as they are both Kai and Zander are remarkably "soft mouthed."
Look how big Zander's paws are! He could wear my shoes.
My #1 Dog only wanted me to throw a stick for him and he couldn't have cared less about the beans. I finally gave him one. The look of betrayal was epic. Titan is not a vegetarian and that bean was not meat or a stick. So he spit it out and went back to trotting around with a real stick and thinking Kai and Zander were ridiculous.
My beautiful Kai, amazed by beans.
I love having good helpers, don't you?
Happy Thursday everyone! That snap snap snap sound you hear is me working on another half bushel of beans!
