Colder days, ready your garden and your stores!

ready your garden for winterFrosty nights and cold days are just around the corner and approaching us fast. As with all seasons winter is no different when it comes to preparedness and for many it can be the most important season of all. Winter is that time for many of us that have not already started to begin our efforts to button up the homestead and be ready for the shorter and colder days that lie ahead.

Join Katzcradul on The Homestead Honey Hour as she talks about wrapping up the summer gardening and canning season. She’s planting ‘greens’, lettuces, spinach and kale every week, to have a never ending supply for the dinner table until the first winter frost. She’ll also talk about crops she leaves in the ground, even after the first snowfall. She’ll also be discussing what we need to do to put our garden to bed for the winter, in order to have it in tip-top shape for next spring’s planting. ready your garden for winter

Katz will also talk about the importance of taking stock of our equipment and supplies and replenishing where necessary…and not waiting until the last minute to do it. Although we ‘put the garden to bed’ for the winter, we should not be napping! Winter is the perfect time to catch up on all those odd jobs, that we find so hard to get to during the busy part of summer. She give a list of chores we should be working on during the ‘off season’. Join Katzcradul as she leads a lively discussion on The Homestead Honey Hour.

What you should consider and know about dehydrating, rehydrating, and canning!

Bexar profile 100There are many out there that are preserving their own foods or are just starting and are on their way to learning the ends and outs of long term food storage. There is a lot to learn along the way and like any other endeavor you enter into it takes a lot of research and practice to get it all down and get it right.  Processing food is a skill, that for many is handed down from generation to generation but it is also a skill that must be mastered. A mistake in re-hydrating, dehydrating, or canning food can be dangerous to those that you love as well as yourself.

canningI am always receiving questions asking about the different techniques, the right and proper tools to use as well as tips, tricks and the best methods to get the desired results in food preparation for short term and long term storage. The questions are many, varied, and without the right answers you can find yourself wasting a lot of time and money as well as putting yourself and those that you love in danger.

On this episode of Preparing for Life’s Storms I will be answering those questions. Questions like; How much water do I use? Does it need to be boiling or just hot or can I use cold water? How much dehydrated corn does it take to make a cup of corn? The list is long but without the right answers the results can be disastrous. So join us and listen in to have these and any other questions you may have answered. If you already process your own food or are just getting started this is a show you will not want to miss.
