FarmHer Jill's a plantin' taters
and A LOT more.
And some hoses were frozen so hard I couldn't get any water through them
Should be only one more week of these hard killing frosts --- no more frost pictures I promise-- and then just light ones after that till the end of the month. Why don't I move somewhere warm to garden? Believe me, I have often asked myself that question. I guess I am just a glutton for punishment, but most of all I think I enjoy the challenge of getting the harvest in and the reward of hard work and the effort it takes makes it worth it. Besides I can grow the best potatoes, warm days --cold nights-- and the greens produce all summer long.

Anasazi Bean Soup
Rince beans in cold water. In a crock pot add 1 quart of water to the beans. If desired place a couple of ham hocks in with the beans. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours. Watch and add more water if necessary. Remove meat from hocks and take the bones out of the soup. To thicken, mix 2-3 tbs. corn starch with 1/4 cup water and add to beans. Add seasoning packet. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with crusty bread.
