Garden Bonanza on the Ponderosa
I know I haven't been around much this week.
This is what has been keeping me busy.
Yep...we are picking about 20-30 every other day.
I have made 16 quarts of sweet pickles.
(Recipe is on my side bar under Finger Licking Good Recipes)
I am going to tackle some dill pickles next...this will be new for me to try.
Next on the busy list is the Zucchini.
I have put up 16 quarts in the freezer with my food sealer.
And dehydrated a few for chips.
And we have given a ton away...and eat them with about
The okra is coming along fine...and there should be okra
in the next week or so.
We have 5 types of beans planted. I saw a few blossoms this morning.
We planted 104 tomato plants. Salsa anyone?...lol
They are still green and some have just started blooming.
The hens have been enjoying the scraps of the garden.
And one hen...well she is celebrating .
She has been sitting for 21 days...and it has paid off.
I saw a little face yesterday...peeking out...I am a Chicken Nana....lol
Now for some garden humor....
We planted golden yellow zucchini...and green zucchini
and there was some visiting going on after dark in my garden....lol
What happens in the garden stays in the garden!!....smiles
I haven't forgotten our Chat around the table.
Remember our chat on buckets and their usages.
I have been using mine for soaking the pickles in lime.
For carrying the goodies from the garden.
For storing the canning stuff in the RV.
Keep collecting those buckets!!
I hope you are enjoying your gardens...and I wished y'all
lived closer....I have plenty of squash to share...lol
Hugs and squeezes....Cindy
