and this. . .
It is a TON of work to grow your own food and then process and preserve it, but I am always so happy I've done it when it's all over - and of course eating delicious fresh veggies all summer long is a pretty good perk too!
I'm still working on getting all our veggies properly stored for the winter, along with prepping winter beds and planting winter crops. Hopefully I'll be back soon with some of the furniture pieces I've finished recently, as well as other things that kept us busy over the summer.
This year I stuck to the basics, as it turns out my family doesn't really love fancy chutneys and jams - maybe when the boys are older. Do you can? What's your favorite food to preserve?
