Blanch and freeze.  Be sure to use freezer bags.  I had beans until a couple of months ago.

Ditto. I bought a Food Saver and I love it for freezing blanched veggies.

Spicy Dilly beans drooling

These are easy and could be the start to your canning skill repertoire.

Are KY wonder a good bean for canning? Is there a prolific bush bean for canning that resembles KY beans in taste and texture? Thanks

I've neither canned beans, nor grown KY Wonder.
Not sure if this helps but I do remember seeing that KY Wonder comes in a bush version as well as pole:

Here are opinions from someone else:

Thank you. I have been reading and these articles are following the trend I've seen so far. I have 8 squares begging for bush beans.

My sister in law grew bush green beans and canned:  Blue Lake was her choice year after year.
