Frozen Food

My growing season is so short that I bought a chest freezer this week. I would prefer an upright for ease of use but the cost is 3 times higher. The nosedive model it is.

This is assuming that I get a bit of food production this year. Even so, I plan to buy meat in bulk to keep cost per pound down.

All is going well so far in the vegetable patch. I have potatoes, onions, asparagus, pumpkins, corn, summer squash, Zuchini, acorn squash, watermelon, NM chili, sunflowers, western salsify, pinons, and fruit trees. Next year the fruit trees will likely bear fruit.

It has been around 90 degrees and dry. Monsoons should start in a week or three.  I don’t have any moisture forecast until July 1.

About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.
