stock that pantry

What better to do on a rainy Saturday before Labor Day than watch the Texas Longhorns roll to an easy victory and can a bunch of stuff from the garden. Today’s tally:

  • 7 quarts of sweet bell peppers
  • 2 quarts and 5 pints of pickled beets
  • 6 pints of mild salsa

Guess what’s on tap for Sunday? Yeah, cleaning the kitchen. Beets are messy!

where does your food come from?

Now I don’t know where all my food comes from, but I know were some of it comes from.

It starts here:

Garden Large yeah, that’s the garden.

Then the food arrives in the kitchen:

And, then it gets turned into pickles, canned hot pepper rings, and relish:

Canned Stuff

I also make my own Salsa and sweet peppers as well as freezing beans, okra, squash, tomatoes, and zucchini.

Most people don’t think it’s worth the effort. But, I don’t mind the work one bit. It’s nice knowing where at least some of your food comes from.
