    Ranch beans sound real good! I will have to watch the video! I am growing a big patch of pintos this year.

    Hummus- are you canning it blended? Do you have the recipe Brenda?

I leaned heavily toward heirloom seeds, as well, as I had a lot of luck this year starting from last year's crops. I am picking up a frozen turkey this week, to store for use during the holidays, if we are allowed to get together with family by then.

    I am nervous about spring seed as well- i'm trying to acquire my "must grows" but a lot of places are still sold out.

    I always get mine mail-order. I did have to order more piecemeal this time, as some catalogues were out of some things. But I also order weird stuff.

    I have enough tomatoes dried now to make up some jars of sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, but the store was out of basil, and my little plant isn't big enough yet to harvest enough. May have to try it with just oil and garlic this time around.

    I need to grow a big pile of basil to make pesto for the freezer. I'll grow that in an AG though. Basil loves hydroponics and usually produces like crazy.

    Just harvested a bushel (figuratively) of peaches from my peach tree. Can't decide if I want to can, freeze, or dehydrate them.
