Preserving the Harvest!

Preserving the Harvest

Are you working like crazy preserving the harvest from your homestead this summer? For homesteaders and gardeners, this time of year is usually filled with canning jars, freezer bags, and oodles of fruits and veggies waiting to be put up for winter. I joined a group of blogging friends earlier this year to offer a bunch of great preservation posts for our readers!

There’s no hitch, just click on each post to read up on how to preserve the produce from your garden or the market. You are welcome to peruse at your own pace. I hope you find this information helpful!

PS: The ladies behind these blogs are all wonderful people who share a wealth of homesteading, gardening, and preserving posts on their websites. I hope you will stop by and visit them! Let them know I sent you 🙂
