I planted 2 rose bushes, 2 Russian Sage, 1 pink bee balm, 2 other perenials... that i've forgotten the name of. Potted 3 geraniums and 1 white dahlia.

Anyone with any interesting recipes for banana peppers we need something different to do
the dilly whole ones, really are not what we expected, but they are beautiful.
I really don't want to do the sweet relish because they are actually better with warmer peppers.
At the farm too we're adding a new layer of screen from some recycled chicken & fencing wire we came into.
