One of the joys of farming, and gardening here in the South, is having some type of vegetable growing almost year round, turnips with roots are one. Last week while out on my walk, I went by the turnip patch, that's what we here in the south call a place where we plant our turnips.~smile~
Here is the one machine I cannot be without, my foodsaver. It does exactly what it says it does, saves your food, from freezer burn, and it keeps food so much longer than regular freezer bags, especially when you buy in bulk.
Labeled and ready for the freezer.
And what did I do with all those peels?
Planting, growing, harvesting, and preserving, the fruits of your labor is not only economical, but so gratifying. Even after all of the many years I have been doing this, I still get so excited when I go to the garden and see something growing that dh and I had planted. What's so amazing is that you don't have to have a lot of acreage, just a little place where soil is, even among the flower beds, herbs and veggies love to reside, it makes them feel important, don'tcha know, as Miss Emily from Walton's Mountain would say! ~smile~
Ecclesiastes 3:12,13~ I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives,and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor--- it is the gift of God.
