Preserving our harvest in pictures

My youngest helping by washing the table when I'm trying to work on some herbs.
When blanching for freezing, you need to cool quickly in an ice bath.  We used popsicles because I could refreeze them (no, they are not real food but it is one thing that is cheap and the girls absolutely love.  We haven't gone Real all the way).

While cutting small tomatoes for dehydrating, we thought this center looked like a frog.

More to dehydrate

Getting herbs ready for tincturing, dehydrating, or tying.  There's lemon balm, mint, thyme, oregano, & parsley. 

One day's harvest! Beets, tomatoes, ground cherries, spinach, turnips, cucumbers, nasturtiums & herbs
