With gardening season coming to an end, it’s now time to harvest and preserve all those fruits and veggies for the coming winter. One of my most satisfying joys is reaching into the freezer or panty to pull out a complete meal from thing grown or hunted from our land.
It always seems like a never ending task of putting up the harvest, but when those cold winter days roll around and the snow is deep I know I wont have to leave the house and make a trip to the grocery store.
Today is the day I get together with the other bloggers for our cozy ideas for September. A big thank you to our hostess Jeniffer for putting it all together and below you’ll find more ideas to click through.
I expanded our raised garden beds this year and added 5 more to the 8 I already had. It was just enough that I could easily manage the planting, weeding, and picking without dreading it.
I started my seeds indoors under grow lights this year to cut down on the cost of starter plants and that turned out to be one of my best garden decisions. In my small areas Ive managed to supply our family with fresh/frozen or canned veggies until next season. I’ve put up beans, corn, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
I’m sharing with you some of my easy ways to process theses food and to me these are the best ways for maintaining flavor and freshness.
