the farmer's market is moving into it's permanent location at the rail yard tomorrow and i'm gonna go to get some chicken frames from tom at Pollo Real and some dill flowers for pickling tomorrow! look forward to the pickle blog #3. coming soon. i think we harvested something like thirty to forty med-large lemon cucumbers earlier. placed in bread bags in the fridge until tomorrow afternoon wi
th some (hopefully) farm fresh dill. (on the growing list for next year.)

after speaking with a few quasi-experts about hops, i've decided to harvest some soon..(next day or so) and the rest as they come. Pick, dry for a few days, then package in vacuum sealed bags and frozen. this new freezer couldn't have come at a better time, just as we;re harvesting enough food to preserve. now I may need a lesson in home-brew before using these awesome chinook hops. also I will need various home brewing supplies. maybe i should check out the local home brew supply shop. then i'll probably end up at the hardware store seeing how i can make the same thing for less cost. defiantly back burner material with the hops being froze and all.

general garden views ,some pics becke took and weird beetles on a cholla cactus.
