Snapshots of life on our little homestead

The hard frosts at night have started and the daytime temperatures are sliding towards the low 30s this week, so it was time to harvest some of the last vegetables in the gardens and start bed cleanup and  fertilization.

This morning I cleaned and blanched a laundry basket full of kale that will be dehydrated and then ground into powder for winter recipes. Then started shredding cabbage that would not fit in the sauerkraut crock for dehydration as well. 

Our gardens have been good to us an will keep us fed through the winter, but I will really be glad when all of our food prep is done….now I need to figure out what to do with all of the sweet peppers….
