    Question Are you getting low on veggies from your garden in 2005?

    Yes, I'm out of frozen carrots, only a couple packages of green beans left. I still have one bag of potatoes which will last probably until the first week in Feb. if I stretch how many we have a t a meal.

    I realize now I didn't plant enough carrots nor potatoes.

    All I have left are dried herbs and peppers, and salsa.

    The potatoes are gone; they lasted 3 month. The peas only lasted about 2 meals. And I had germination difficulties with the carrots, followed by an Attack Slug, so I knew I wouldn't have enough of those.

    We're still working on green beans, shredded zucchini, and pumpkin puree.

    I'm almost out of blackberry mushy stuff. I'm not sure what to call it. I milled the seeds out of blackberries, then concentrated that liquid down to something spoon-able, and froze that in sheets. I didn't process much because I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. When I started making my own yogurt, I began using a lot of the blackberry stuff as sweetener/fruit.

    I think I may have a few more dried apples (from the neighbor's tree) over at my moms. After drying them, I froze them.

    I'm hard at work planning for '06.

    My garden vegetables were eaten on the way into the house.
    Couldn't help myself.. they were so delicious.
    This week, I borrowed canning how-to books from the library. I'm going to try my hand at this year- with alot of help from the village people!

    I still have quite a lot left. I'm now wondering if I put too much up, especially of the peppers and the jams.

    Not enough tomatoes or zucchini left. Gobs of chiles left, though! I'm going to "donate" some to the neighbors this week. LOL Just about the right amount of jam left.

    This is one of my weak areas ---- I still have a lot of stuff in the freezer. DS won't eat ANYTHING with tomatoes --- unless it is pizza or maybe lasagne. When I froze tomatoes, I envisioned making lots of soup but I hate to make something DS won't eat. (I guess he could just eat peanut butter when we have soup?) Neither DS or DD like the corn we froze. And I still have LOTS of sweet potatoes in the basement. THey keep better in the basement than if I bring a boxfull to the kitchen (to eat out of for several days) and I tend to "forget" they are in the basement.

    On the bright side, DS does like the pickled okra I made.
