The last of the garden harvest

Well its time to pee on the fire and call the dogs, the garden is done. Rodger and I went to the garden this evening after supper and got the sweet taters dug. We had about a bushel of them. Not bad for just having about 10 plants. And they were big ones too. Got those in the out building at Jason's house so they can cure before we store them.
I picked the tobacco worm beans off the vines that were dried so I can shell them out for seed to plant next year. There are more on the vines that will dry later and I can pick those as well. I got the rest of the banana peppers, bell peppers and jalapeno peppers off the plants. I had some jalapeno poppers at a restaurant in Nevada when we were there and dang they were good. I do think they had cream cheese in them. Now I just gotta figure out how to get em all fixed and freeze em for deep frying later. Those were quite tasty and not too hot. Just wonder how good banana peppers would be with cream cheese in em and battered and deep fried. I think I need to do some research on how to's and see what I can come up with.

Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Hey gal, I looked around on line today and found a bunch of recipes for jalapeno poppers and one of em recommended freezen em for about 20 minutes before frying. I am thinkin I could freeze em and then BAKE em with really good results. I am gonna try it tomorrow when the guys leave to go off hunting. Ill let ya know howthey do

Hi Stella-
What kind of beans do you grow that you can save seed?
Kentucky Wonder by any chance? (makes sense)
That's what I grow up here in NH & I'd like to plant from seed.
Great blog/life...

Best, DT
