    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.

    I have 6 qts of bread and butter pickles in the fridge and 8 qts of dills there. 5 qts of tomatoes, 2 pts of tomatoes, 12 pts of peach salsa all in the canning done. I was given a bunch of seed last fall and my dd planted for me. less than half came up. she did pick up some watermelon plants and honeydew and cantalope plants too. we harvested 13 watermelons. 3 honeydews and so far 1 cantalope. these we are just eating fresh. green beans are just enough for fresh eating. I had wanted to can some, but dd was the one putting in the garden and I wasn't here to help or tell her how much, so she didn't know to plant more than she did. All good though, I figure anything we get out of the garden, even if it is fresh eating only, is good. zucchini plants are already dead and we have eaten all that we have gotten from them. We still have cukes coming out of our ears, plants are dying off so that will finish soon.

    Dehydrated most of the peaches. Making up a large batch of turkey stock from some extra necks I need to use up. Will likely pressure can that, so it doesn't take up more space in the freezer.

    I harvested 5 cucumbers yesterday and made 2 qts of hot pickles using an open kettle recipe, so no canning required. I've decided this will be my go-to method from now on. I never get many cukes at once. It only takes a few minutes to make 2 or 3 qts and that's a nice amount for us.

    was able to get 4 qts of peaches canned. this finishes off the peaches from my trees. We ate many of them fresh and in smoothies etc. will probably try to get more of my tomatoes done tomorrow. I get enough every 3 or 4 days to get 4 to 5 qts of them. It is easier to do it this way with littles around.
