I live in Wisconsin and my husband is the gardener in our family. But he's been very busy at work and as a result, our pole beans (green beans he grows on three branches tied together to form a tee-pee) have gotten overripe. My son already picked a bucket of them, but they don't taste good. Can I still do something with these? Can I open up the pods and use the seeds
in soup or something? If so, can I freeze the seeds
as they are or do I need to blanch them?
We also have overripe cukes. Any use for these or should I just compost them? Several weeks ago, we picked cukes and made them into refrigerator pickles. But we only need so many pickles! The rest of the cukes are now overripe.
