SWAP YER CROPS!

Zukes alive.

Tis the season when gardens are teeming with ripe veggies and fruit and kitchen counters, freezers and cabinets overflowth.

So with to do with the all the earth’s summer bounty?  After all you can only eat three meals a day.  Preservation (canning, drying, freezing, fermenting) is one possibility and swapping crops with fellow gardeners is another localized food security orientated option.

Join up on Freedom Gardens to find fellow homegrown revolutionaries in your area and swap yer crops!

Hey, you might event get lucky and find someone you can dump all your zukes on or better yet strike up a friendship. You never know!

Pssst, all you local yocals, you got anything to temp us with?

    You are so right Anais! It’s great to swap with others 🙂 My MIL who lives in Kentucky has lots of blackberries — so, we came home last weekend with ziplocks full of frozen ones as well as a gallon of fresh berries we picked the morning that we left. My MIL knows how much I love berries (and we don’t have any planted this year — but will next year). Hers always produce so much!

    Also, my husband’s uncle has cherry trees (they don’t grow well down here in South Alabama), so we get cherries from him — AND — DH has an aunt and uncle who have apple trees! Their apple trees produced abundantly this year so we brought about 2 gallons of them home with us.

    Now here in Alabama, I can grow LOTS of tomatoes and cucumbers…. so I share what I have an abundance of with others.
