I retired July 8th and the garden came in like a fast moving thunderstorm! For that entire month I was either in the kitchen canning, on the porch preparing to can or in the hayfield with hubby moving hay to the haylots. I want to share with you our season bounty in a photo roll.
We dug our potatoes on Thursday and picked up 21 five gallon buckets full and they’re beautiful again this year. The potato bin is more than half full and it’s a 6’x6’x6′ bin. We picked up about two gallon that were cut when plowed up and Friday I made a crockpot full of potato soup and a half gallon of potato salad.
This shelf section is full of green beans, canned potatoes and canned sausage. The second photo is tomatoes, barbecue sauce, spaghetti sauce and more potatoes. The third is full of jams, jellies, pickles, relish and maple syrup, and more.
We have three freezers of various sizes and one is full of fruit, one with vegetables and meat and the big freezer will be filled with meat as well. My family will be well fed this winter.
