It’s been a week-end of hunting and gathering. Joe’s doing the hunting part (no word yet on if he’s been successful); I’m taking care of the gathering. So far I’ve:
-picked cranberries and used some of them to make four jars of cranberry sauce;
-dug up all the spuds and stored them in the garage;
-dug up some of the baby carrots (the ones that didn’t reach their full potential because I neglected to thin them sufficiently) and made dilled pickled carrots;
-collected all the ripe and nearly ripe tomatoes and turned them into several jars of salsa:
-pulled a big bowl of beets for dinner; and
-harvested the last of the broccoli and cauliflower for tomorrow’s stir-fry.
My cavemen ancestors would be proud.
