My pimento peppers are ready to harvest! These were started from seed on March 30, 2014, up-potted on April 30 and set out in the garden on May 22, 2014. These will be diced and frozen to use in various dishes.

Canned pickled dilled beans are wonderful treats! This is my first batch made from green beans, garlic, fresh dill and peppers all from my garden. This recipe is on page 184 of my cookbook: Dad's Home Cooking; Traditional Recipes for Preparing Healthy Family Meals available on Amazon.

Red beets from my winter garden make a wonderful vegetable for any meal. I like mine pickled using the recipe in my cookbook Dad's Home Cooking; Traditional Recipes for Preparing Healthy Family Meals available on Amazon. These beets were planted August 8, 2013. Since the weather was below freezing in mid December, I covered the beets with a layer of tree leaves and secured them with row cover to keep the leaves from blowing off. They came through the freezing weather just fine!
