All About The Garden

Today's harvest consisted of cukes, red potatoes, bell peppers, tomatoes, banana peppers, and squash. The zinnias in the back were also harvested by hubby this morning from the garden. We planted them to help with pollination and pests.

My sister asked last night for cukes and squash. So tonight after dinner this box will go to her and friends. No one in our family likes squash, the plants actually belong to my mother but she and my dad can only eat so much squash.

I had neglected so far to show a picture of our new dehydrator. It has been getting a work out. Today I spent two hours preparing thinnly sliced potatoes to dry for 8 hours. Tonight I will cut up most of the bell pepper to dry.
