My garden delighted me with mangel greens for my friend’s animals, artichokes, beets (and their greens), broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, green onions, herbs (of all kinds especially mint), a few bell peppers, potatoes, radishes, strawberries, sugar snap peas, spinach, summer squash, swiss chard, a few tomatoes, and turnips with their greens.
I feed the animals daily from weeds, trimmings and spent plants. Do not feed them the tomato or potato vines. I also went to my rental house and trimmed trees, vines and weeds. I bagged it up and fed it to the animals. Free food yay!
Most of the veggies, we ate fresh or lightly cooked. Beets get roasted. I did blanch and freeze collard greens, mustard greens and swiss chard. I made something called cabbage tonic and real old fashioned sauerkraut.
I obtained 4 gallons of whole raw milk from which I made some cultured butter, keifir, farmer’s cheese,yogurt and some ice cream.
The big sale find this month was pineapples at $1.00 each. I bought several. We ate quite a bit and then I froze the rest in chunks.
