Since our corn didn’t do very well this year, we bought a few dozen from a produce stand.
We shucked ’em, blanched em’ and froze ’em!
We also got some peaches and froze them in 2 cup portions to make cobblers.
It’s crazy how much work goes into preserving (even just to freeze!). I don’t know how women used to do it with babies to take care of! They must have helped each other out a lot.
Anyway, we dug up our potatoes and carrots tonight. The potatoes did pretty good especially since we didn’t hill them or do anything, but the carrots were pretty puny. We fed most of them to the neighbors goats.
I’m gonna replant the ones that are sprouting and see if they will make before our first frost. I think I’m gonna try growing them in baskets this time. Has anyone tried this before?
What have you been preserving or harvesting lately?
