New Year’s Resolution …. I’m eating my freezer contents until I see the bottom.
My tiny allotment has been so productive that I have been blanching and freezing veggies, cooking batches of soups, meat and veggie dishes and pasta sauces all using my fresh produce. The result – my small chest freezer is now full to the top. Silly to go grocery shopping when I already have my own ‘supermarket’ sitting in the garage.
So that’s the freezer sorted.
Now I just have to look at working my way through the produce that I have pickled – red cabbage, beetroot and cucumber.
This abundance has made me think how lucky we gardeners are with our ability to feed ourselves with lovely fresh food despite battles with weather, pest and all manner of critters.
Here are a couple of pics taken during the year.
