The hubby and I got up before the break of dawn and trudged out to the garden to beat the heat today. We picked a 5 gallon bucket of tomatoes, half of a bucket of green beans, and two 5 gallons buckets of potatoes. Then we proceeded
to can the beans, and can all of the tiny, small potatoes. Then all I have to do to make potato soup is crack open a jar, or then go great with stew or a roast. But we ended up not getting done until about 6 this evening. I also made a batch of blueberry
jam. You know I have a facebook thingy and I think most of my family and friends think I am crazy to be doing all this (some even say"but you can buy it at the store so much easier). It's easier to write about what I've been doing with the allrecipes gang
because you guys get it! Making your own food and having a garden! We could almost wipe out the hunger problem in the U.S. if people would garden and share it! I wish more people would use their foodstamps to buy seeds and grow a garden that could provide
for their family all winter. It would so beneficial. There is nothing like getting your hands in the dirt and growing your own food! Well I guess I'll get off my high horse and go sleep a well deserved nights sleep!
