And the harvest season has begun at our house!
Last week we had an unexpected frost that killed the plants in the garden so it was time to pull tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and cucumbers. We had a great growing year, however it never feels quite long enough! Dad has started canning the tomatoes and I’m super excited to have tomatoes through the winter. There is nothing like opening a can of your garden tomatoes in the middle of winter! Last year our tomatoes didn’t grow and I really missed them!
Our root veggies survived the frost so I’m pulling them at my leisure. Today I pulled the onions and wow! Great onion year, if I season them properly they should last us till next garden season!
We culled our meat chickens a week ago (well we didn’t do it personally this year, we hired out for that and it was worth every penny), and the freezer went from almost empty to almost full!
We are so thankful to be able to grow our food that feeds our family!
