Sorry you're down Ed. Hope all gets better soon.

Put those Bambi's in the freezer.....(don't tell her I said that). Mmmmmmmm.....Bambi chops!

I was gonna can up the wax beans till something sparked a memory. Wax beans are very low acid and require pressure cooking to can. Dom talked me out of a pressure cooker, so they were blanched, vacuum packed and are in the deep freeze.

Think I'll plant another round of radishes and a patch of spinach. Time is just right.

A nice harvest of peppers and beans this morning.

Cayenne, firecracker chili, Anaheim, jalapeņo, hot banana and really hot cowhorn. The chilis and cayenne are strung up over the dehumidifier in the basement to dry. The cowhorns and Anaheim  I'll vac pack and freeze. The banana and japs I'll pickle. Picked another couple quarts of wax beans too. I'll share them with the neighbors.

Lots more peppers still on the plants ripening.

  I'm surprised you don't have a de-hydrator Bob. Nice pull, mine are loaded too.

Not veggie garden

But we got to work last weekend on the bushes, shrubs and trees in our front gardens.  Badly needed and it really made a huge difference on the curb appeal of the house.

I also pulled a ton of weeds.  Wanted to mulch it but decided to wait till spring for that.

I've been watching at Goodwill for one Ed. I don't dry a lot of stuff. Herbs dry quite nicely in paper bags hung in the basement. Garlic sets up in the garage ( just brought that inside today). Gave some thought to building one ( I know I can do that), but it's one more thing hanging around waiting to be used.

I've got faith in Dom. If he says hanging them to dry over my dehumidifier will work....I'll go for it. If it doesn't, I'm taking a road trip to raid his freezer😁.

Processed up the last pick of peppers today. Froze most of them and made a batch of sweet mustard pepper relish. Very tasty stuff.

Thanks Bob..
The lady that moved in way down the hill is known as "The Garlic Guru ".
She was open yesterday and it was amazing.  I never knew how many varieties there are.  Wish i had my phone to take pictures of her set up.. 
She gave us several different samples..
Than she asked if we ever tried Black Garlic?   Said i never heard of it..   Had the texture of a gummy bear and a very unique flavor.   You dont grow it you make it.   You have to look it up and try it....   We will be trying to make some..
