Dawn and I have been kept busy tending the gardens at both locations. Green beans outdid themselves before beetles and a spell of dry weather wore them out.
We purchased a vacuum sealer to prepare the beans for the freezer--a bit of a learning curve before we became proficient.
Some of the prettiest green beans went into 16 pints of 'Dilly Beans'--recipe supplied by son-in-law, Matt.
We have harvested tomatoes for the table, but predictably, we are seeing blight damage on many of the plants. We made several plantings of tomatoes of different varieties and hope there will be a late harvest.
I am enjoying the prospect of choosing plants--maybe a small climbing rose--a clematis--or two?
My favorite local garden center reopens next week--and a new catalog from a reliable source landed in the mailbox a few days ago, giving me options to ponder.
