Sheesh, I'm suffering withdrawal pains, is anyone out there today?

Not much going on in the Shirley garden as we are suffering a mild
norther blowing in. Yesterday we picked enough green beans to put up 3
more pints of dilly beans and I picked a peck (not really!) of peppers.
A mixture of mild Longhorn and Thai Hot chiles. The Longhorns went to
friends who really like them, except for about a dozen we will eat with
our meals. The Thai Hot's were made into a pepper sauce suitable for
greens, beans, and whatever. Again the sauce will be a gift at the
appropriate time. Christmas shopping is done except for the youngest
grandchild. The older ones get money, the kids get a food and herb
package as do near relatives and friends.

On top of all of this our little upright freezer is full and the pantry
is full. Other than possible some carrots and greens I don't see us
putting much food by this winter although I may try to make a sauerkraut

What's happening in your garden?
