A little canning & drying

I got the last of 2 rows of green beans done tonight.  I put them in the dehydrator before going to work.  I miss my garden this year it didn't do well at all with the dry spell we had & me hurting myself so I couldn't even tote water down to it. I did find I have some onions coming back up so I will get them up this weekend. I have started drying Kale, mustard greens & turnip green this year from the fall garden I share with 2 other friends. I am using it in soups like a herb. I crush up a small hand full & add it to the soups.  We have found it is pretty good & I will be doing as much as I can before it is gone.
The last of 2 rows of green beans 12 more qts &  a few dried.

A new cook book I got for my B-day

T's deer jerky going in, so no after wards photo, he got to it before I could take 1.


  1. It all looks so good! The cookbook looks really nice - that was a sweet gift. And I giggled at your comment under the deer jerky :)

  2. I just reread that 1,He was fast on getting it out & hid before I knew it. I am going to see if he will let me do a post on him making the deer jerky. It's better each time he make it. I am loving the new cook book to, am taking my time going threw it to see what I want to try from it. :)
