One of my own personal goals is to be more self sufficient. I remember during the 70s that we had our own garden. We grew tomatoes, lettuce, pumpkins, corn, green beans, peas (ewwwww), grapes, zucchini, and other many other things. When the food was ready to be harvested, we would bring it from the garden and prep it for canning. Once canned, it would be stored in the basement to be eaten thru the winter.
I wish I could say that I had gotten more out of this. I feel fairly competent that I could grow
a decent somewhat of a garden, but I have no clue about getting it ready for canning.
It seems that as the years go by, people as a whole get more and more unable to sustain themselves. Maybe part of the problem is that it isn’t cost efficient to grow your own garden these days. In my own thought process though, it seems that this should be vital knowledge as part of our own survival. You never know when you might need it.
