As many readers are aware I have limited outdoor space and only have 163 sqf of raised beds to grow veggies in. I have enough space to grow produce for immediate consumption but lack the space to do any major preserving from the garden. One day I will live in the country but that is in the distant future so for the time being I turn to local produce for preserving. Below are photos of the produce we purchased today and a short write up of what its future holds:
Here is 7 litres of baby cucumbers, they are about 3" long and 1" wide. I will be turning them into baby dill pickles this evening, should be a late night!
Here we have 9 large field cucumbers, I think they call them slicers in the States. They will be made into sweet green relish at some point this weekend.
These are your standard high bush blueberries and there is 6 litres of them. Tomorrow they will be washed, dried and divided into freezer bags for pies, muffins etc.
Here we have the best blueberries you can find. They are wild blueberries that grow on low bushes up north. They are about the size of a small raisin and have a very concentrated sweet blueberry taste. They are also rather pricey at about $12 a litre(quart). These will also be washed, dried and froze tomorrow for muffins, pancakes & cereal.
Well out I also took a few photos of the county and animals:
