I've been very busy stocking up the garden. I've updated the stats that I've been keeping track of on the left side of my blog.
I intended to weight all of our produce and keep track of that, but I'm running out of time and often forget. I've frozen about 4 quart bags of green peppers already.
Our carrots did much better this year. Longest one so far has been 8 inches. We planted them in a different part of the garden. I dug some up for dinner. I won't have enough to freeze or dehydrate, so we are planting more for a fall crop.
Cut and dried more sage, rosemary, oregano and thyme.

Staked 38 more tomato plants using pieces of wooden drying racks that were beyond repair. Pulled out the pea and bean plants and replanted for another harvest.
