With Fall fast approaching the Farmer’s Market season will be coming to an end until next year. I was listening to Rachel Ray the other day who is a big advocate of farmers' markets. She said why not buy more than you need and freeze or can their produce to last you through the winter months. I might not have time to do that for the whole winter, but I thought what a great idea . The next one I go to I will definitely be buying more than I usually do.
I am participating in The Farmers' Market Challenge, hosted by the Squirrel Queen. What a great way to get the word out in support of our local farmers. Thank you Squirrel Queen. You can join in by clicking here.
I love to read all the comments to each post, and try to answer every one of them but sometimes it’s a little hard to keep up even with all the trying. I just wanted to say here and now how grateful I am to you for stopping by my blog and to thank each and every one of you who let me know that you have. I promise I will do my best to return the visit eventually. To all the drop-byes who don’t leave a comment because of the time factor or who speak another language, thank you.
I read my comments to this post so far and thought it would be a good idea to mention this one from Lily at“blahwg Life on the Farm.” She has some good tips on freezing food and writes:
“It takes very little time to freeze the produce. For our green beans, I just snap off the tips and break the biggest ones in half and drop them in a quality zip-lock gallon bag. They last for months. I do not wash them until time to cook. We freeze our corn the same way, without removing it from the cob. We even freeze tomatoes! We grate up the extra zucchini and freeze it too, so it's ready whenever we want to make fresh zucchini bread. So listen to Rachel and stock up for winter before it's too late!”
