Prepping for winter

Harvesting constantly now. But starting to get one of these or just a couple of those. So most now get processed into sauces for pasta and slow cooker meals 
We still are getting lots of tomatoes so their the basis for the sauces. In here is one zuccini, one finger eggplant beans and some okra my father gave me from his garden also red Spring onions and some little leeks. So everything is home grown 
Here they are ready to go into the freezer. Love putting away food for the winter. Makes me feel very organised, frugal and connected to the women of the past who had no choice but to do this every year.  Our grandmothers and great grandmothers were really amazing women to survived all they did. 
And here is some silverbeet,  I just lightly cook it in some water and once it's drained and cooled add a little olive oil salt and balsamic vinegar. Very yummy. Will be eating this for dinner tonight 
How are you going with your garden?  
We are getting more storms now so I won't have to water again which is always a bonus lol 
See ya xxxx


  1. Never heard of silver beet - taste like the red ones or ? I always like seeing your fresh garden finds. A 'real' fresh cucumber would be mighty tasty about now.

    1. I think it might be called chard in some places. It's leafy and grows like spinach. You pick and eat the leaves it's doesn't have a bulb

  2. All looks so good. Had chicken legs, mac and cheese, with cauliflower.
    Coffee is on

  3. I wish my whole life could be lived in three seasons, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
