|This fence is what I worked on this past weekend.|
This is where my green beans were planted.
I used fence posts and twine.
I also planted more squash this past weekend.
I love having it in the freezer in the winter.
I blanch cut up squash and freeze for casseroles
and I also freeze some for fried squash.
In this picture you see my last row of white half runners.
I didn't even stake these up and they are doing good.
To the left you can see I still have some squash growing.
Here you can see my bell pepper plants.
They are doing really well.
I flash freeze my bell peppers and put in a zip loc bag
so I can just reach in and get what I need when I am cooking.
We are so blessed with tomatoes.
I love them any way I can get them.
I have made homemade soup for the winter.
Tomorrow I am making salsa.
And of course....tomato sandwiches.
"Sweet Hunter's" Granny taught me most of
what I know about freezing and canning.
Here is how she taught me to do the squash so it will be ready to fry in the winter
and it is so good!
Slice and bread with cornmeal just like you were going to fry it.
Very lightly grease a cookie sheet and then put squash on it in
oven 450 degrees. Watch it very close. You want it lightly browned but not cooked through.
Turn over and brown the other side. Set out and cool.
Place in freezer bags and it is ready to fry in the winter!
I planted "Sweet Hunter" a field of sunflowers!
Our first bloom!!!!
I had several cucumbers come up on there own and
I was wanting some more cucumbers so this is good.
I have about 20 plants but they
have just about played out and I am not ready for this bountiful
supply to end!
This is why I love my garden!!!
And that's why
Sometimes I just want to praise YOU.
Sometimes just to speak YOUR name.
Oh Sometimes I just want to thank YOU,
without asking YOU for a single thing.
Oh sometimes I lift my hands to YOU.
And sometimes all I do is cry.
Everything that I have I owe to YOU,
And Calvary's the reason why.
