Here are a couple pictures of what the Bag Lady's been up to lately:
She picked some peas, which the cat had to inspect (he wasn't very impressed):
And shelled them:
Then she blanched them and froze them, but didn't take a picture.
She has also been making jelly and jam, and working in the garden. It doesn't seem to matter how bleeping dry it is, the weeds will still grow! She has been harvesting lots of spinach and dehydrating it for future use. She dug some potatoes, carrots, onions and rutabaga the other day and used them in a stew with home-grown beef, and some of the fresh peas.
Some of her tomatoes are starting to ripen, and she has banana peppers that are ready to use. She's about to get really busy with canning! Might try pickling some of the peppers as there are so many!
She has a huge amount of dill in her garden - a whole row! - that is volunteer. She allowed some of it to go to seed last year so she could harvest the seed, and obviously didn't get it all... but now she has a lot of dill that she can't use because she didn't plant any cucumbers to make pickles. She will make some dilled carrots, and probably will dehydrate some and freeze some, but wow, there's so much! She'll have to search the web for some ideas of what else to do with it. Anyone have any suggestions?
