How important is it to be able to grow your own food? HMMM. Or should I say MMMMMM…..
The heat this year has brought us plenty of the above vegetables. These we eat right away or put away for the winter. Blanching is occurring below. We are usually able to grow enough vegetables to last the entire winter. This would be post harvest – different for each vegetable – to the end of the following spring – about Mid-June. This year we still have carrots left and some beans.
The most important vegetable that we save is small onions or what some may call pickling onions. I will discuss this in the next post.
