Hopefully your gardens are growing now. Now is the time to take an inventory of what you have left from last year. Yesterday I took a physical inventory of all home canned items. Why did I plant so many cucumbers this year? I have 60 quarts of various types of pickles STILL!
I also have about 60 jars of homemade jelly, oh my!
I am hoping the tomatoes grow like gang busters, as I need to add salsa, spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, and chili seasoning to my stockpile for yummy eating this coming winter.
My next plan is to inventory the freezers. I try to keep plenty of sale priced meat on hand. I can't stand to pass up a deal! I will be arranging by type of meat and then there will be areas with frozen fruit and veggies.
Remember when buying items on sale, you are actually saving money (as long as you will use and not waste). Prices are going to continue to go up, so money saved is money in your pocket.
Pickles and squash canned last year. Pretty huh?
So now is the time to plan what you will be canning this summer and have any additional supplies on hand. Garden produce waits for no one!!!!!!
