Thinking ahead

by Amy

I’ve been thinking about preserving for a couple weeks ago but I got the Territorial Seed Fall & Winter Harvest Catalog today and that’s got me jumping :lol:

I will likely freeze peas, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, corn if there’s any to freeze (unlikely!), zucchini, and squash.

I’ll dry any herbs I can.

Then I will can (jar) tomatoes, making tomato sauce and whole and diced tomatoes. If there’s any beets left, I’ll can some. Strawberry jam, but with strawberries I buy, our patch won’t provide enough for the year. I’ll probably get peaches and can some for this winter.

Once the garden is done, I’ll till in our compost and peat moss and plant a cover crop and till it under after a couple weeks.

Then I’ll plant crops that can overwinter.

That’s the plan for now. Like the garden this spring, it’ll probably change 50 times :lol:

I so hope to get enough snow peas to freeze. I’ve started drying my herbs, but that is all I can do right now.

YES! ANother person who plans like the wind! I’m all psyched to grow a cover crop of hairy vetch this winter. We’re enthusiasts, all.

This is why I love your blog. Plans of action! This one gets bookmarked for me so that I can remember the right things to do once it’s time.

It may sound silly, but I’ve never frozen my peas before. I should definitely do that.
