Going to a Permakulture demonstration this weekend. Not sure if that is how to spell it, but we are looking forward to learning.

Way off topic here but my son is working on a college project and needs your help. Can you fill out his survey before Thursday night? Link below.

It's apple harvest time where I live! Wahoo! Went to the National Apple Harvest Festival and ate too much food. Most not so good for me. But on the way home we stopped by our new favorite farm market. All organic!!!!!! Bought a large box of Ida Reds to make apple butter and picked up some fresh pressed apple cider. Can't wait to start buying their pastured meats.

We had quite a bumper crop of squash and zucchini this year. I've frozen more dukes than I will probably use all year long. I tried lacto-fermenting the squash but we don't like it, so we eat and eat and hand it out. Our learned lesson...plant only one of each next year!

Thanks Melinda.  My daughter and I decided to freeze chili mix.  We did gallons of it last week and will be doing more in the next couple of days.  Now all we need is some cool weather, meat, and beans!

To freeze tomatoes you will just need to dip them in boiling water for about a minute in order to easily loosen and remove the skins. Then either freeze whole or chop or blend into sauce and freeze.  Canning is also very easy since you don't have to use a pressure canner.

I'm not going to be able to learn to can this summer.  We have tomatoes.  A LOT of tomatoes!  Can I please get some advice on freezer storing.  I was thinking about making chili mix and freezing it so this winter all we would need to do is add beans and meat.  Would this idea work, or is there something else I should do with our harvest to use during the rest of the year?

Interesting. So you both realize the difference in grass fed beef as opposed to grain fed? As well commercial beef producers feed cattle ground up cattle remains. Makes for bad meat.

We found that when we switched to venison we lost our tolerance for beef. It even makes us nauseous when we eat beef now. If you want red meat I'd try venison.

The fact that most of us were raised for years on gmo foods, McDonald's and sugar, I've found that by the time we get to "our age" that our digestive trac is in need of a lot of healing. You may want to consider a diet or supplements that heal your gut then you will likely be able to digest a good healthy clean meat. We use Genesis Pure products for that but others do a paleo diet etc-
