It’s been awhile since we’ve done a pictorial dispatch from the urban homestead. So ya’ll ready for one? This one features a lot of the garden but that’s a focal point in our lives now – picking, packing, eating, selling surplus and pretty soon, putting up the harvests!
Coming up, another Weekly Meal Wrap Up for you to enjoy our daily eats.
This week, Justin picked and handed me 2 lbs of blueberries with a warning “don’t eat them all!” It will be hard, but I will try. They are so delicious! Unlike store bought blueberries, which (to me) are tart and tasteless, these blue beauties are packed with intense sweet flavor. What a difference homegrown makes – it’s simply, true food!
We have a saying here, “know your food, know your farmer.” But it’s much more than that – you have to know where your seeds come from. Especially who owns ’em. So many varieties that we are growing on the urban homestead this year are seeds that are “grown by the people for the people” and are sold on FreedomSeeds.org (owned an operated by our family)
What’s happening on your homestead?
