I recently restocked on vacuum bags and just in time for corn and fish season. For those of you looking to save money on those vacuum bags I have ordered my last two batches from
If you use lots of bags to store your winter food the price can't be beat and so much cheaper than those boxes or rolls of bags you buy in the grocery. I got 250 quart bags for right around $80 with shipping. They work great on my foodsaver machine and I hope last me through to next summer. You can also find oxygen absorbers and mylar bags here as well. Thanks to katzcradul over on YouTube for the heads up on this source of bags!
These days with O Wise One's Sunday fishing trips I think he is going to need lots of bags.......
Our winter should be full of crunchy oven fried fish and oven fries. Now all we have to do is dig those potatoes.
Yesterday I spent several hours in the tomato patch cutting the tops out of tomato plants and pruning them to help the plant concentrate on ripening the fruit that is still on the vine. I am hoping with warmer temperatures predicted for the end of the week that it will help them to ripen. It has been so cool that they are ripening just a few at a time now. I got one nice picking a week or so back and now they are just trickling in. That cool weather is nice for the gardener but hard on ripening fruit. We also have an unidentified critter eating ripe tomatoes, my guess is a possum! This weeks project. Kraut........
And onions for the freezer and horticulture beans. O Wise One cleaned out the big chest freezer yesterday and reorganized it. So today he is butchering roosters.
I am baking burger buns for the freezer.
