I can not wait to bite into these babies! We will have about 4 ready in a week to pull off and eat. The rest are in various sizes/stages of growth and will provide us with Cantaloupe through out the summer.

Todays harvest. I planted way to many sweet peppers this spring, they are coming out of my ears. I will dry half of them and freeze the rest. There is a beetle critter getting to my tomatoes, so I pulled a few to see how well they will ripen on the vine in my window seal. The green beans should be ready to pick in about a week as well. I am ready for something new to harvest!

How do you dry your produce? With an electric food dehydrator?

Everything looks yummy! :-)

I do use an electric dehydrator my neighbor gave me when she moved. Green (sweet) peppers dry wonderfully and then you can just throw them in soups or whatever you are making.

I try and think of ways other than freezing because you never know when your electricity might go out and then you could loose everything.

I have seen that many folks sun dry their foods, but I have too many little hands, beaks and paws that would get into it, plus flies...yuk!

Great garden.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
