We made a trip into Rest. Depot in Atlanta before we left town on Monday ~
we bought carrots, onions, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, split peas, tomato sauce, ground beef, pork loins, and frozen shrimp!
The vegetables will be either canned or dehydrated. I started with the carrots ~ so far I've canned 16 quarts, 7 pints, and 7 half pints. Plus I've got the dehydrator going and have got 8 trays drying carrots ~ these will be good rehydrated and used in soups or stews. My hands are orangey tinted. Oh, if you're trying to figure out how many carrots that is ~ its 50 pounds. And I am not finished yet, just ran out of "steam".
Here are some pictures of the carrots & updates of the garden pictures!
