Just about every other day I go out and pick a handful of Blackberries. I eat a few and then freeze the rest so I can make blackberry jelly this winter.
We decided we needed more blackberry bushes so I started a few more from the old vines.
Froze cherry tomatoes (thanks Lorna for the hint).
Canned more tomatoes and green beans. I also dried a few green beans in the dehydrator.
Picked spaghetti squash and cooked then froze the insides. We finally got to try some and it was delicious!
We let the kids play and we had a good visit in one of the old homes that had been restored. We visited one house twice. The first time the volunteer lady was sewing a quilt on a treadle sewing machine and then the next time she was making a rug. We decided we wanted to be like her and live in that house!
I won 3 first places and two thirds at the county fair! So exciting!
We bought 12 pounds of hamburger on sale at Meijer this weekend for $1.59 a pound. This time I've cooked and froze it. I freeze one pound of cooked hamburger in each bag and they are ready to use in a meal. I cook the hamburger in my crock pot so I can do other things while it's cooking too. It makes less mess too!
Continue harvesting the garden.
What are the ways you saved this week?
