Canning Beans....again

Maybe I am not doing this right. I mean, after all, this is only my second time to can beans. I started at 12:30 pm today, and I just took the last ones out of the canner, at 11:00 pm! I am now the proud owner of 26 quarts and 1 pint of green beans. Does it take everyone else this long using a pressure canner??

oh lordy noooo, i shouldnt take that long, should take an hour or so,,,,,,at the most two hours,,,i dont remember how long beans should cook in the canner, but surely no more than an hour,,,is your seal working properly????is it leaking air and not sealing up fast,,,???

Maybe that is the problem, it took over 30 minutes to get up the pressure, then I pressured them for 25 minutes and then it took another 45 to bring it down to Where I could open them.
