Freezin'

Green beans and tomatoes....

Movin',,,,

Swapped some herbs in one garden for some peppers in another to try to get the right mix of sun and soil. My cilantro and purple basil were both wilting in full sun while my peppers in my lower garden weren't getting enough sun. Swapped them out and hope to get better results moving forward. Also planted some new basil that I got from Crazy Daisy Gardeners. Check them out at www.crazydaisygardeners.com

String Beans

While writing my Grandmother's memoirs, I came across some interesting ideas from the 30s and 40s. One of them is using needle and thread to string up beans. I'll dry them in the sun and then see if they turn out as tasty as they did back in the day....


Rain is good...

Nice harvest after the recent rain showers:
