Week 1 of 7
This picture is from September, and may be one of my favorite ones from the farm. Jack is probably complaining about the radish crop and I was probably in a great mood
Out of this this garden we got radishes, turnips, cabbage, and mixed greens this fall. I enjoy when he is out there in his garden. I really think it's his therapy. I enjoy making jewelry, him-vegetables! Fun combo uh?
This winter we are enjoying our cold weather veggies with our dinners. No radishes were saved (my dad ate every bit we didn't sell at the farmers markets. Turnips are used in lots and lots of soups. Cabbages, what few we ate due to a lack of rain, were used immediately. And mixed greens were sold all over the county to customers and restaurants.
It is nice to know that my family is nurished with good fresh, local, raised on our farm pork and venison, and veggies we stored or canned. It allows me to have a grocery bill of around $100 a month (if I meal plan and stay creative).
Happy next few days!
