So, have I told you that I am addicted to Craigs List? I even have the app on the phone!
Current settings are to capture everything in VT that falls into the Farm & Garden section, and freezer chests. The Farm & Garden is for dreaming (cattle anyone? Need a draft horse? Giant tractor?), but freezer is for motivation.
See, if I have a freezer, and use the energy for it to run, I need to fill it. And not just "I got carried away at Costco and bought hordes and hordes of ice cream" (although very tasty...), but with fruits and veggies from our gardens to "put up" for the winter months (and in VT, that is roughly September thorough May...). Althought I am not certain if you can "put up" with out canning jars...but you get the idea. One step at a time.
So far, put up items have a grand tally of four. Two sets of each Vates Kale and Rainbow Chard. That is over 1/2 a week of veggies! This could be the start of something beautiful.....
See a picture of our lovely Rainbow Chard below ;)
