Canning, freezing and drying!September 9th, 2015
All Summer long I have been busy putting up food. I have canned many quarts of vegetables, fruit, pickles and relishes. Some of which I have entered in County Fairs.That is a lot of fun!The last part of August I planted a second crop of lettuce and spinach. It has been very dry here so that needs to be watered twice a day.My dill and millet have been harvested when totally dry. I seperated the dill seed from the plant and stored it in a cool dry location.That is seed to sell. The millet will simply be given to my chickens to eat. You should hear them cackle when they get it.Yesterday I harvested my first bushel of Flint Indian Corn. Much more to come!!
