My middle grand daughter (3 yrs) landed here for a sleep over as soon a s the restrictions lifted.

Their sleep overs normally run 5 days or more

I started their first small gardens with them last year. Just a couple of 3 x 3 fabric planters and we used their chain link dog fence for the peas to climb.

...they had some real good sugar snap peas, a great crop of string beans but only 2 cukes and a hand full of small carrots...but they absolutely loved planting it. watching it grow and watering it all summer. Bean picking time they were wanting to go out every day and gather some...lol

Sooo..Yesterday Dalilah and I went out and she planted her green, purple and yellow string beans, some corn and peas...and a full bed of red potatoes (small bed..lol)...she kept saying...I can't wait to eat these

...THEN, she spotted my chives and it must have rekindled her memory from last year...she immediately went over and started pulling some out and eating them

...she kept saying ...mmmmm..grandad...I love these.

We're going out to their place to get theirs started next week or two. Such a great experience for them to do this ..just to see the excitement and grins at harvest time are priceless !!!

Never heard of this method...anything I ever leave in the fridge usually wilts beyond goodness...lol

I've been using my microwave to dry out my dill weed ferns for my dill pickles. Works great !

..I lay a bunch ..single layer between hand towel...put it on a plate and give it 1 minute time....let it cool...check it for "crispiness" if it's not quite dry enuff, then put it back in for another 30 seconds...then I grind or crush it up.

I use it in salads..I put a tsp of it in each jar of dill pickles..along with my other stuff...some mix it with sour cream for an extraordinary dip !

LOVEEEEEE me dill

We are in the cape and hoping our garden didnt get hit by frost. Only time will tell as we are here until Sunday
We planted everything so the garden is full, we filled the last 2 rows with swiss chard and more peppers.

I cut about a third of mine yesterday...gonna do the rest tomorrow. DIL and my daughter want a few to add to their repetoire of cooking recipes ;) ;) I was thinking on trying a couple of jars of pickled scapes...seem really popular in the canning circles.
