All Summer long I was cooking, canning and storing food while it was fresh. In a way you could call me a hoarder of fresh food. While the garden is still producing and we can buy things locally I don't want to break into the stash. But Andy has had his eye on those peaches for weeks now. I have kept him away telling him I needed to take a picture so I can show off my hard work.
I have to say every time I walk past the shelves I feel proud. Some might find this silly. I know there are some of you out there with much much more than me. But I know that this food all came from my garden, a family member or a local vendor and was grown the right way. Come Winter time we will pop open cans and have food that tastes better than most grocery store cans. I am excited knowing that even though nothing is growing outside we will still be eating well.
This week I finally filled up the shelves with all of the green tomato goodies and decided it was time to document the beauties.
No sooner had I snapped the picture Andy was popping open a can of peaches and ate the entire quart in a sitting or should I say standing. I'm now thinking next year I need to can double the amount of peaches at the rate he is going to consume them.
