My kids and I went strawberry picking, We got enough for six batches of jam and had a great time. I'm hoping to get one more visit in to the u-pick place, I' like to freeze some strawberries for baking and dehydrating.

Raspbery season is next!

Harmonyhousefoods.com, which I talked about in my vegtable post is kosher. Home dehydrating and canning vegetables is kosher too, as far as I know.

I'm glad you liked it.

Aren't master plans great? It takes a lot of thinking and work to teach kids to appreciate all the different vegetables.. Mine are still firm in their dislike of cabage though, darnit. Cabbage has vitamin C and lots of other good things in it. I'm still putting little bits of cabbage in slow cooker dishes and hoping they'll get used to it.

That is great! How lucky you are to have such nice neighbors. We go to u-pick places for fruit and have found a place raspberies grow wild. Unfortunately, all the wildlife and a few neighbrs know where it is too...

I should have bought the 9 tray, but didn't realize how much space I could use. The 4 tray looked very big back then.

Different vegetables can add nice flavors to pasta sauce too. I love experimenting with that.

Where you are, every bit of liquid is valuable, right? In your place I'd probably find room for canned vegetables because I'd also be storing the water in the cans. For me, I have to work to keep the inside of the house from geting too damp with all the rain and humidity outside. I do not need the liquid in canned veggies.

I'd probably use the veggie liquid to cook in rice? That would be very efficient. I think, but I'm not sure, the veggies are basically cooked in the can. Its the case for home canning at least. If that is true, by using the liquid, you get some good vitamins and nutrients.

I'm sorry RWmom, I don't really do recipes anymore. I have a recipe book called 365 ways to clook chicken and another called the Everything Slow Cooker Cookbook. I used them until I got a kind of a feel for how things worked, then became a 'whats on sale' and 'what would be fun to try' type of cook. Even my pasta sauce never tastes the same way twice.

Just try adding different vegetables to your favorite recipes. Add a smalllish amount of things at first to develope your own feel for cooking. In an emergency, I think we would have to do a lot of improvising, why not try it sometimes now?

I have a 45 by 30 foot garden that my kids and I are learning to grow vegetables in. This is our third year - we still aren't very good at it. We can grow: zucchini, cucumbers, radishes and tomatoes. Our green beans, carrots and asparagus die so far.We are bravely trying watermelon and hot peppers as new items this year, and trying green beans once again. wish us luck!

Obviously there is no way we can grow enough vegetables for the 6 of us. I am settling for learning how to grow some vegetables, and hoping I will never have to depend on that knowledge. Congratulations to you, Red, for having the skills and land to grow your own vegetables!

11. You are mortified if you ever run out of anything and go and buy at least 6 of whatever you ran out of. Then you check to make sure nothing else is low..

12. You value your pool as potential washing and toilet flushing water as much as you do for swimmming. Mmm. I lie. I value it more as possible washing and flushing water.
