Just A Quick One
No wonder I do go away often to much to organise,
Its not the best time of year to be leaving the garden.
I picked some of the beetroot this morning
Cooked it up and got it pickled
That was one job ticked off the list,
Next up was the corn on cob, it goes over so quickly, I picked 6 cobs got them blanched, vac packed and ready for the freezer,
job 2ticked off the list
But on opening the freezers it was obvious I had to have a sort out
Freezers all got emptied, ice scraped off then re-filled this time with an inventory for each of the three freezers.
There was so much stuff to list, but the job is done, 99% of the contents is all home produced.
How lucky are we.
There is also more space in the freezers now, after a check over the lists there is enough meat, fish, fruit and vegetables to feed us for about 2 years, this shows that we are over producing or need to eat more, although when Martin is here full time we will go through more food.
I now just need to do an inventory of canned goods, pickles, preserves and dehydrated goods.
My little bag is packed all ready for my trip tomorrow, will be home again Friday in time for some friends arriving, but before I go we need to take Helen back to the vet in the morning, she has been chewing at the injury area, the vet thinks its nerve damage from the injury, we shall see tomorrow.
Will catch up with everyone on my return.
