On the Farm
This past summer was crazy busy between the Farmer's Market, my parents visit, our visit to Joshua and getting things prepped for Mark's egg business, we didn't have a lot of down time. Here is a recap of what happened on the farm. Mostly garden projects...
A pic of the garden at the beginning of summer...it always looks so small but by the end of the summer, it was hard to even walk through it...I will refer you to the garden video in one of the August blog posts.
I really upped my fermentation game this year. Here are half gallon jars of carrots, cucumbers/pickles, and salsa. I ended up fermenting about 4 gallons of salsa. I really like it on my morning eggs.
The cauliflower did really well this year. I ended up freezing some of it but also canned some dilly cauliflower. I also fermented some cauliflower. It was super stinky while fermenting but tastes really good so I'm glad we stuck it out. The broccoli did well this year too and I froze a lot of that too. I have a much better idea about how much I need to plant. I planted too much of some things and was able to donate to the food bank so nothing was wasted.
I started on another "food forest" that goes along the lower part of our driveway. Here, Yeti is helping my put down cardboard and hay on top of it.
Headed out to the garden today to try and collect as many veggies as possible before the big freeze comes tonight!
