I picked a handful of peppers off the plant I thought was the Medusa (sweet green peppers that grow like jalapenos), and a couple off another plant. It looks like they may both be Medusas, no bite at all from the second batch. They're definitely a keeper, and I'll be saving seed from them, despite that they may have cross pollinated from the hot peppers. I'll look for Medusa seed when I order next year as well. It's nice to have a green pepper that actually produces around here.
One big tomato from the greenhouse, 2 little ones from the perennial bed. Tomato season may be upon us! I'm pinching off flowers and suckers ruthlessly now.
I pulled a few northern (dry) bean plants that were starting to topple over and turn yellow. I think the yield there will be quite good as well, about a pound from just a few plants.
Mom gave me a bag of cucumbers last night, so today I think I'll try a batch of dill pickle relish.
Cream of Celery soup took a bit longer than expected, but didn't break the rules after all. The recipe called for chicken stock, rather than milk and flour for the base, so I had to cook a turkey, then make stock, then make the cream of celery soup. This one will definitely be a winter canning project in the future. It's nice to have a few jars sitting on the shelf right now though, ready to make Balogna Rolls with all of those beans at a moment's notice!
And one huge fail, just before we headed south. The freezer in the hallway came unplugged, and no one noticed until it was too late. Luckily it wasn't even half full, but sadly it did have the last of my roast beefs and corned beefs in it. I've been cooking it up in my biggest stock pot for dog food, so I can package it in smaller portions. At least it's not a total loss, but it makes me mad at myself for rationing out those roasts rather than eating them all. :(
