Do you think we really need to plant a garden this year? Last year was a tomatoes and dried beans year, this year we had planned on canning green and yellow beans and maybe Swiss chard and pumpkin. After taking stock of what we have left on the shelves, I'm starting to wonder if maybe flowers are all we'll need, lol. Of course, needing the food and needing the therapy of growing things are worlds apart--- back to the seed catalogues I go!!IMG_2276.JPG IMG_2270.JPG IMG_2263.JPG IMG_2274.JPG IMG_2262.JPG

Wow ! Nice stock of veggies and such. How cold do you keep you storage room?  Wife and I are thinking of doing something like that this year. We did can a few tomatoes, certainly nothing like you have there.      Thanks.   Roger.

Very nice.  I need to get something like that put together, it would have made this past winter just a speck happier. 

 

I also now know where to go when Al Gore proves himself right and the world burns up.  At least someone will have salsa.  :rolling:

That's a nice stock of good food for sure!  But the therapy of gardening is priceless, as well as fresh picked stuff!

I'm adding a big WOW too.

As suggested, keep the garden going, and give it friends and neighbors.

Wow, that ought to last until the garden is producing. Reminds me of the basement pantry when I was growing up. Mom always had a big garden and canned everything. Home grown veggies and fruit all winter long!

Did someone grow up during the depression?  That looks just like my wife's grandparents pantry used to look.  When I was stationed in VA and we came down for a visit we would go back home with enough food to last us a month or better.   The therapy is the best and if you have the green thumb to do it why not. :thumbs:

How cold do we keep it? In the winter it is around 48F., but because it has two outside walls I have insulated the potato bins with plastic egg cartons to keep it from freezing in the closed bins. None of the jars touch the back walls for the same reason. In summer it gets up to about 60F., a little warmer than we like, but the best we can do You're right, we're both children of the depression, and sharing is pretty much what we do. It's a great feeling to be able to give someone fresh food from the garden or a jar of fruit or jelly out of the cold room.

LOVE IT!!! :thumbs:  :thumbs:      I also like that you have a place for a library.  If and when the need arises nutrtion for the mind becomes a neccessity also.   Rick
