Click on pics to enlargeIt's that time of year when all our hard work is paying off. As we were preparing the garden for last nights frost we harvested about half of the tomatoes along with another picking of squash, chives, peppers and Swiss chard. And I can't forget our one 'little' pumpkin.
I've been dehydrating herbs for several days too. The below pics are of the wonderful crop of parsley we had this year. I planted them with my petunias and it was such a showy backdrop for the flowers. You can see pics of them on some of my past posts.
I've had this dehydrator for so many years that I can't even think back that far. I'd be willing to bet they probably don't even make this 'off-brand' unit any longer. It has seen a lot of use and I will be lost if the day ever comes that it just plain gives up on me. I've used it for everything from herbs to vegetables, jerky, fruits, you name it! It's like an old friend that shows up for it's annual visit usually in the fall.
