In the summer especially, I love seeing what other people are doing with their gardens and what they are preserving. Even if I get a little property envy from time to time (I wish we had room for huge crops of potatoes, carrots and other “one-time harvest” vegetables!). Here are five sites I’m referencing nearly daily lately, as I preserve summer’s bounty:
Broken Plow. Cassie (also of Back to Her Roots) and Craig have been homesteading since 2012, on the property Cassie grew up on. I love their weekly food tallies and their gardening updates, and it is fun to see what they’ve been preserving. I am now inspired by their food tallies to track every little thing I harvest from the 2014 Savvy Garden — I’ve only been tracking the big things (cucumbers, beans), but not every handful of greens or herbs I pick.
Food in Jars. If you’ve ever Google anything related to canning, you’ve probably stumbled upon Marisa’s blog. She is my go-to resource when I can’t find the answer to a canning question or recipe in any of my cookbooks.
