First storage potato crop brought in as well, and curing before going in the back pantry. One of these days we hope to add an old fashioned cold cupboard to better preserve things and for longer storage life.
This weekend as well as more house painting, we did some garden harvesting. The vegetables are very happy this year, especially our Uncle David’s Dakota Dessert Squash. It’s muscling out everything near it as you can see!
Got beets? We sure do! This week we’ll be processing and pickling many beets. Estimate is about 40 pounds worth this particular harvest.
Pickling onions, cukes and dill as well as some carrots not shown all went into a batch of fridge pickles.
We used this Refridgerator Dill Pickle recipe and in as little as 2 -4 days this jar of goodness will be ready to eat… Mm-mm!
Here Fergus is trying to figure out if he should be jealous of “Tame Chicken”. She’s one of our new hens and seems to love people, running over whenever we are in the area. Naturally she gets special privileges, such as hanging out with us in the yard.
