Going to start getting into canning. I want my family to eat locally grown fruits and vegetables all year long. And since we live in the mountains growing produce in the winter isn't much of an option since we don't have a green house yet. Fruits and vegetables we buy at the grocery store have traveled thousands of miles to reach us and its horrible for the environment... Time to choose a more sustainable option. So if any of you have tips and tricks you are willing to share with this canning newbie send me a DM 😊
I am learning more and more about wild edible plants located in my area. Here we have the serviceberry 😋 a sweet and mineral rich fruit. It was extremely satisfying harvesting from this native plant. I have been walking by shrubs of these my entire life and was always told to not eat them. Which is a good thing to tell a child when you don't have knowledge on what the fruit/plant is. But why don't we have knowledge on these things? How have we become so disconnected from the natural world around us? I don't want to rely on a grocery store to supply food for my family. I want to get back to the way of our ancestors. Foraging every edible plant the land we live on provides. #abundance#connectwiththeland#foraging#wildedibleplants#selfsustainability#mamagaiaprovides
When your husband sends you a photo of the view from where he is working 😍 he is currently rebuilding a lifty shack at the local ski resort. They will be pouring cement by helicopter for the foundation and have to bring all other building supplies up by chair lift.
