Many people have planted vegetable gardens this year. They'll enjoy eating fresh produce this summer. If you want to preserve garden vegetables for when the growing season is over, freezing is a viable option. The color, flavor and texture of the produce is maintained when it is frozen, and the freezing process is easy and less time-consuming than canning. Freezing cannot improve the flavor or texture of any food, but, when properly done, it can preserve most of the quality of the fresh product.

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- Army officials say an investigation of three disease samples missing from a Fort Detrick lab found that the samples were likely destroyed. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick said Wednesday that the samples of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis were discovered missing last year in an inventory of a group of samples left by a departing researcher. Spokeswoman Caree Vander Linden says the report that the vials were missing triggered the investigation, which found that the samples were likely among those destroyed when a freezer malfunctioned.
