The last harvest

With sub-zero temperatures just around the corner, it’s time to remove all the unripened fruits of our plants. Preserve will be made out of the green tomatoes.

and all that is left of the garden is a decrepit mass of dying plants img_0015

Fresh produce!

We have more than enough vegetables for our consumption. We’re canning some of them and although they won’t last us a whole winter a little more effort next year will allow this.

We also have 6 chicken, get about 4 eggs a day and are thinking about a goat.

I feel like we’ve taken a huge step towards self sustainability.
