I know I’m supposed to be working on pieces for our Fall Open House (September 6th through 9th) but I could no longer resist these beautiful lilacs harvested and freeze-dried from my favorite shrub!

14 quarts of green beans pressure canned
4 quarts of green beans frozen for Instant Pot recipes
6 quarts of cauliflower frozen
1 quart of ‘Fooled You’ peppers diced and frozen
The tomatoes are finally beginning to ripen. They’re not pretty but they are absolutely delicious! This gorgeous head of cabbage will be sauerkraut but it’s going to have to wait until tomorrow...we’re tired! 🙂 Dinner tonight is a grilled mostly grass fed steak from a local family farm served with cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans and a kale salad from our garden. I am in heaven!

We’ve been blessed with a beautiful Sunflower harvest! In addition to our freeze-dry technology we use our Sandvac machine to preserve some of our blooms. The flowers are pre-treated, carefully buried in silica gel then placed in the machine under a vacuum with heat. The result is a flower that looks like it’s been freshly picked from the garden! Tomorrow is our August Second Saturday! Stop by to check out our harvest and see what’s blooming in the gardens! We’ll be open from 9 to 4! Looking forward to seeing you!
