Harvest and Preserve

Harvest is the time when all the preparation and work you have put into the garden pays off. Depending on what has been grown it can last throughout the entire summer and into the late Fall. Canning, freezing or dehydrating garden grown goodness is a good way to save money and enjoy your crop throughout the year.

Note: Ensure you aren’t using any outdated techniques when canning.
