Ever since Jason and I met and I learned about his career (he’s a Civil Engineering Technologist having to do with maintenance/construction of roads), I’ve always been blown away with things he or his guys find on the side of the road and are left to clean up. Everything from appliances and BBQs to animal road kill.
It wasn’t until we moved to southern Ontario that vegetables have started being added to this list. What do you call that? Vegetable road kill? There was the time they got the call about the rutabaga spill and had to clean up the spill. Yesterday a produce truck lost crates of green beans and obviously they couldn’t deliver them to the stores, but there was nothing wrong with them…except that they will show bruising soon.
So, guess what? I’ve been blanching and freezing green beans all day. In the month of May! I guess I don’t need to plant as many bush beans this year.
What a strange turn of events, turning into a blessing as I fill the freezer. Wonder what’s going to be next?
