We spent some time this weekend putting some food up, as they say. With the help of my in-laws and their quick shucking we were able to put up 10 lbs of corn. My original plan was to dehydrate the corn, but the kernels were too small for the holes in the tray on the dehydrator, so we ended up freezing it.
We used the dehydrator to dry some carrots, celery and green beans. I’m not sure what I think about dehydrating the food. We’re going to keep at it and see how things turn out.
Apples are starting to come in! Yum-O!
Tried another good bread recipe this weekend. More to come on that one. I want to try it a few more times, and I think it deserves it’s own post.
I need to post a picture of the back garden area. It’s so full of tomatoes, sweet potatoes and squash plants I’m kind of afraid to venture back there. I cleaned up and cleared some space in the past few days for the fall plantings. I had already done some lettuce, radishes, broccoli and mesclun mix. Now I’ll put in some more carrots (hopefully I’ll still have time??) and more lettuce and broccoli. I got some brussel sprouts to try and also some green onions. Plus I’ll need to get the compost crops in soon too.
I took my little one to the market with me Saturday morning. He was able to finagle a free apple from the apple guy to snack on while shopping, and a free farmer’s market coloring book from another lady. He wasn’t able to get me a free egg roll though from the egg roll people. Those people are made of steel! See an example picture to the right of what he looks like when he’s working his magic.
